St Joseph Prayer for the Dying


St. Joseph, protector of the dying, we supplicate you for all the dying, and beg your assistance in the hour of our own death. You merited a happy passing by a holy life, and in your last hour you had the ineffable consolation of being assisted by Jesus and Mary. Deliver us from sudden death; obtain for us the grace to imitate you in life, to detach our heart from everything worldly and daily to gather treasures for the moment of our death. Obtain for us the grace to be prepared and to receive the sacrament of the sick and with Mary, inspire us with sentiments of faith, hope and love and sorrow for sins, so that we may breathe forth our soul in peace. Amen
