O St. Joseph do assist me by your powerful
intercession and obtain for me from your
Divine Son all spiritual blessings through
Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged
here below your Heavenly power I may offer my
Thanksgiving and Homage to the most Loving of Fathers.
O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you
and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not
approach while He reposes near your heart.
Press him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me,
and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my
St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us.
Say for nine consecutive mornings for anything you
may desire. It has seldom been known to fail.
This prayer was found in the fiftieth year of Our
Lord Jesus Christ. In 1500's it was sent by the
Pope to Emperor Charles when he was going into battle.
Whoever reads this prayer or hears it or carries it,
will never die a sudden death, nor be drowned, nor
will poison take effect on them. They will not fall
into the hands of the enemy nor be burned in any fire,
nor will they be defeated in battle.
Make this prayer known everywhere.
