Prayer to St Joseph for Protection

Ask St Joseph, patron of the Church and great protector of Jesus, to protect you today with this powerful prayer against the powers of darkness.

Blessed Joseph, husband of Mary, be with us this day.

You protected and cherished the Virgin;
loving the Child Jesus as you Son,
you rescued him from danger of death.
Defend the Church, the household of God,
purchased by the blood of Christ.

Guardian of the holy family,
be with us in our trials.
May your prayers obtain for us
the strength to flee from error
and wrestle with the powers of corruption
so that in life we may grow in holiness
and in death rejoice in the crown of victory.

(Leo XIII (1810–1903) encouraged the recitation of this prayer after the Rosary and the Litany of Loreto during October.)
