Because you were the watchful guardian of the Holy Family, please watch over us, Christ's chosen offspring. Like an alert father kindly keep far from us every taint of error or corruption. From your place of glory on high come to aid us in our conflict with the powers of darkness.
V. St. Joseph, whom the infant Jesus so much loved;
R. Grant us what we ask, please.
Assist us, Lord, by the merits of your foster father, St. Joseph, spouse of your most holy Mother. May his help gain for us what our own efforts cannot. This we ask through you who live and reign with God the Father in the Union of the Holy spirit, one God, for all the ages.
