To you, blessed Joseph, we come in our needs and having asked the help of your
most holy Spouse, we confidently ask your patronage also. Through that love
which bound you to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, and through the
fatherly care with which you embraced the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you to
look kindly upon the inheritance which Jesus Christ has purchased by his blood,
and to aid us in our necessities with your power and strength
(mention your request).
Most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, defend the followers of Jesus Christ;
most loving father, defend us against the attacks of the evil one and assist us in
our struggle against the power of darkness. As once you rescued the Child Jesus
from danger, so now protect God’s holy Church from the power of Satan and
from all harm. Shield, too, each one of us by your constant protection, so that,
supported by your example and your help, we may be able to live as dedicated
followers of Jesus Christ, die a holy death and obtain eternal happiness in
We ask, you, Saint Joseph, to intercede for us in Canada in the special meeting
that will take place in Rome with Pope Francis and Indigenous leaders and
representatives so that there will be truth, healing and reconciliation fostered
among our people, you who are our Patron Saint. Amen.
