PRAYER FOR THE YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son; in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph to us too, show yourself a father
and guide us on the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen
(from the Apostolic Letter of Pope Francis,
Patris Corde – With a Father’s Heart)
