Novena to Saint Joseph
Glorious St. Joseph,
foster-father and protector of Jesus Christ!
To you I raise my heart and my hands to implore your powerful intercession.
Please obtain for me from the kind Heart of Jesus the help and the graces necessary
for my spiritual and temporal welfare.
I ask particularly for the grace of a happy death and the special favor I now implore.
[Mention your request here.]
Guardian of the Word Incarnate,
I feel animated with confidence that your prayers in my behalf
will be graciously heard before the throne of God.
V. O glorious St. Joseph,
through the love you bear to Jesus Christ,
and for the glory of His Name.
R. Hear my prayers and obtain my petitions.
