The Great Saint Joseph
St. Joseph, patron saint of travelers
and pilgrims, bless my journeys.
You were an alien in a strange land,
help me treat all aliens with respect.
Joseph the Worker,
patron of artisans, craftsmen and laborers,
help me find holiness
in the labor of my hands.
Holy Husband of Mary,
patron saint of fathers, husbands and families,
pray for me and my family.
patron of those inspired by dreams,
help me be guided by mine.
Patron of hospice care and of a
peaceful, happy death, pray for me
that I might have a happy death.
Saint Joseph of Nazareth,
of the Holy Family,
blessed are you among bridegrooms.
Holy Father Joseph,
beseech from your son Jesus
heaven’s richest blessing
upon our homes, our families
and our dinner tables,
as we honor you
on your feast day.
A Blessed Feast of Saint Joseph!
