O glorious descendant of the kings of Judah, Inheritor of the virtues of all the Patriarchs, Just and happy St. Joseph, listen to my prayer. Thou art my glorious protector, and shall ever be, after Jesus and Mary, the object of my most profound veneration and confidence. Thou art the most hidden, though the greatest Saint, and art particularly the patron of those who serve God with purity and fervor. In union with all those who have ever been most devoted to thee, I now dedicate myself to thy service; beseeching thee, for the sake of Jesus Christ, Who vouchsafed to love and obey thee as a son, to become a father to me, and obtain a filial respect, confidence and love of a child towards thee.
O powerful Advocate, whose intercession, as St. Teresa assures us, has never been found to fail, deign to intercede for me now and to implore for me the intentions of this novena:
(Mention your intentions here)
Present me, great Saint, to the adorable Trinity, with Whom thou had so glorious and so intimate a correspondence. Obtain that I may never efface by sin, the Sacred Image according to the likeness of which I was created. Beg for me that my Divine Redeemer would kindle in my heart and in all hearts the fire of His Love, and infuse therein the virtues of His adorable Infancy: His purity, simplicity, obedience and humility.
Obtain for me likewise a lively devotion to thy Virgin Spouse, and protect me so powerfully in life and in death, that I may have the happiness of dying, as thou did, in the friendship of my Creator and under the immediate protection of the Mother of God.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
St. Joseph, pray for us
Especially remembering all of our members named Joseph
