Prayers to St. Joseph

St. Joseph Chaplet

SEVEN SORROWS and JOYS of ST. JOSEPH

(Pray also every first Wednesday of the month)

It is composed of seven mysteries in which we contemplate the seven sorrows and seven joys that St. Joseph had in the world.

For each mystery we pray the Our Father, ten Hail Joseph…, and a Glory be.

Hail Joseph, Son of David, the just and the chaste, wisdom is with you; Blessed are you among all men and blessed is Jesus, the fruit of Mary, your faithful spouse. Holy Joseph, worthy foster-father and guardian of Jesus Christ and of the holy Church pray for us sinners and obtain divine Wisdom for us from God, now and at the hour of our death. Amen

FINAL PRAYER

To you, O Blessed Joseph, we come in our trials, and having asked the help of your most holy spouse, we confidently ask your patronage also. Through that sacred bond of charity which united you to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and through the fatherly love with which you embraced the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you to look graciously upon the beloved inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased by his blood, and to aid us in our necessities with your power and strength.

O most provident guardian of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ, Most beloved father, dispel the evil of falsehood and sin. Our most mighty protector, graciously assist us from heaven in our struggle with the powers of darkness. And just as you once saved the Child Jesus from mortal danger, so now defend God’s Holy Church from the snares of her enemies and from all adversity. Shield each one of us by your constant protection, so that, supported by your example and your help, we may be able to live a virtuous life, to die a holy death, and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven. Amen.

MEMORARE

Remember, O most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who implored your help and sought your intercession were left unassisted. Full of confidence in your power, I fly unto you, and beg your protection. Despise not, O foster-father of the Redeemer, my humble supplication but in your bounty hear and answer me. Amen

CONSECRATION to the THREE SACRED HEARTS

Sacred Heart of Jesus, Immaculate Heart of Mary and Chaste Heart of St. Joseph. I consecrate to you this day my mind*, my words*, my body*, my heart* and soul*, so that your will be done through me this day. Amen.

(*make the sign of the cross on the mentioned parts of the body three times a day)

The NINE FIRST WEDNESDAYS
Every Wednesday is dedicated in a special way to St. Joseph. ( Make the Nine First Wednesdays in a manner similar to the Nine First Fridays of the Sacred Heart) in honor of St. Joseph for a happy death, for yourself and your dear ones. As charity is one of the best ways to be worthy of the graces
of a happy death, offer your First Wednesday Mass and Communion and devotions in honor of St. Joseph in a special way for the salvation of the dying, most especially for an undying sinner who is to lose his soul without the grace of final repentance.

Our Lord permits St. Joseph to take from His Divine treasury with full hands in order to give souls the treasures of Divine grace and mercy, like Joseph, the son of Jacob, who took corn from the granaries of the King of Egypt to feed his brethren and all who had recourse to him. From the heights of Heaven, the king of Glory speaks to us the same words as Pharaoh spoke to the starving people of Egypt: “Go to Joseph.”

Consecration to the Most Chaste Heart of St. Joseph

Most Chaste Heart of Saint Joseph, protect and defend my family against every evil and danger.

Most Chaste Heart of Saint Joseph, pour on all humanity the graces and virtues of your most chaste heart.

Saint Joseph I really entrust myself to you. I consecrated to you my soul and my body, my heart and all my life.

Saint Joseph, defend the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

With the graces of your most chaste heart, destroy the plans of Satan. bless the entire Holy Church, the Pope, the Bishops and Priests of the whole world.

We consign ourselves to you with love and trust. now and forever.

Amen!
