St. Joseph, guardian of the Holy Family, watch over the chosen people of Jesus Christ.
Keep us, loving father, safe from all error and corruption. From your place in heaven, graciously protect us against the powers of darkness. As you rescued the Child Jesus from evil persons who wanted to kill him, so now defend God's holy church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity.
Extend to each one of us your continual protection, that led on by your example and strengthened by your aid, we may live and die in holiness and obtain everlasting happiness in heaven.
