Conformity to the Will of God
Great St. Joseph,
to whose will the Savior subjected Himself,
obtain for me the grace to subject myself in all things to the will of God.
Through the merits you obtained when in the darkness of night you obeyed the angel's commands,
ask for me this grace,
that nothing may detain me from fulfilling the will of God with perfect conformity.
In the stable of Bethlehem,
on the flight to Egypt, you recommended yourself and those dear to you to divine Providence.
Ask for me this same grace to conform myself to the will of God in discouragement and despondency,
in health and sickness,
in happiness and misfortune,
in success and failure so that nothing may disturb the tranquility of my soul
in obediently following the way of God for me.
