O glorious St. Joseph,
to you God
committed the care
of His only begotten Son
amid the many dangers of this world.
We come to you
and ask you to take under your special protection
the children God
has given us.
Through holy baptism
they became children
and members of His holy Church.
We consecrate them to you today,
that through this consecration
they may become your foster children.
Guard them, guide their steps in life,
form their hearts after the hearts of Jesus
who felt the tribulation and worry of a parent
when the child Jesus
protect our dear children
May you be their father and counselor.
let them, like Jesus,
grow in age as well as in wisdom
Preserve them from the corruption of this world,
and give us the grace
to be united with them in heaven
