Great St Joseph, you were chosen by God to be the Head of the Holy Family. Kindly look down upon us and bestow thy fatherly protection upon our home.
Model of the most lively faith, obtain for all the members of our family the grace to believe firmly what God has revealed and to bear witness to our faith in all that we do.
May we ever remain bound together by the ties of true Christian love in the unity of the Holy Catholic Church, and taste the peace that Jesus has promised his true disciples.
Grant that we may all love one another as children of God and work together for the salvation of souls, in order to fulfil our role in the great family of the Church and be reunited after this life in the happiness of heaven. Amen.
