YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH
PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us
grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil.
We pray for all who are ill or housebound: in particular, we remember:
Maureen Houston, John O’Donnell, Nancy Mew, Jessica Glover, Caroline McNeil, Joanne King, Eugene McMahon, Teddy O’Neil.
All those who are suffering from the consequences of the current pandemic.
We pray for all who have died recently, R.I.P.
We remember those whose anniversaries are at this time.
