Prayer to St. Joseph

Joseph teaching Jesus carpentry skills

With a Father’s Heart, St. Joseph, you loved and nurtured Jesus.

Surely you taught Him with patience and wisdom, so that He learned to do the same, growing into the man you helped Him to become.

Thank you, St. Joseph, for protecting our Lord, for listening to God in your dreams, for remaining steadfast among trials, and true to the spirit of God’s Law, taking Mary as your wife into your home.

May we turn to you often, to be our model of obedience, perseverance, and fidelity to the life of Jesus.

May you intercede for us, as we ask for the wisdom to follow Jesus, and for your loving fatherly protection on us, the Body of Christ.

Amen.
