O most poweful patriarch, Saint Joseph,
patron of that universal Church
which has always invoked thee in anxieties and tribulations;
from the lofty seat of thy glory
lovingly regard the Catholic
Let it move thy paternal heart to see the mystical spouse of Christ
and His vicar
weakened by sorrow and persecuted by powerful enemies.
We beseech thee, by the most bitter suffering thou didst experience on earth,
to wipe away in mercy the tears of the revered pontiff,
to defend and liberate him,
and to intercede with the Giver of peace and charity,
that every hostile power being overcome and every error
the whole Church may serve the God
of all blessings in perfect liberty.

May Christ support us all the day long,
till the shadows lengthen,
and the evening comes,
and the busy world is hushed,
and the fever of life is over
and our work is done.
Then in his mercy
may he give us a safe lodging,
and holy rest and peace at the last.
Amen. continue reading
