O Guardian of virgins and father, Saint Joseph,
to whose faithful custody Innocence itself,
Christ Jesus, and Mary, Virgin of virgins, was committed;
I pray and beseech thee by each of these dear pledges,
Jesus and Mary, that,
being preserved from all uncleanness,
I may with spotless mind, pure heart,
and a chaste body,
ever serve Jesus
most chastely all the days of my life.
