V81: Prayer to St. Joseph

Oh! St. Joseph, whose protection is so
great, so strong, so prompt before the
throne of God, I place in you all my
interests and desires. Oh! St. Joseph do
assist me by your powerful intercession,
and obtain for me from Your divine Son,
all spiritual blessings, through Jesus Christ,
our Lord. So that having engaged here
below Your Heavenly power, I may offer my
thanksgiving and homage to the most loving
of Fathers. Oh! St. Joseph, I never weary of
contemplating you, and Jesus asleep in your
arms; I dare not approach while He reposes
near your heart. Press Him in my name and
kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to
return the kiss when I draw my dying breath.
St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls,
Pray for me.
