Oh my beloved St. Joseph,
adopt me as thy child.
Take charge of my salvation; watch over me day and night
preserve me from the occasions of sin; obtain for me purity of body.
Through thy intercession with Jesus,
grant me a spirit of sacrifice, humility, self-denial, burning love for Jeus in the Blessed Sacrament,
and a sweet and tender love for Mary, my mother.
St. Joseph, be with me living, be with me dying,
and obtain for me a favorable judgement from Jesus, my merciful Savior.
– St. Bernadine of Siena
