PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH FOR ONE'S FRIENDS

(Note: This prayer was taken from the booklet "Devotions to Saint Joseph" by Brian Moore, S.J., printed and published by the Society of St. Paul.)

Joseph, in caring for Christ our Lord

you cared for all who are 'in Christ',

all who are His

because by His gift they share in His life:

into your loving care I confidently entrust

my friends and all who are dear to me,

all who have asked my prayers,

all for whom I ought to pray

(especially those whom I have injured)

and all who have no one to pray for them --

especially those who, lost to themselves,

have not even themselves.

Do for them, Joseph, everything you did

for the Son of God, who called you 'Father.'

To Him present them, Joseph,

asking Him with a father's confidence

to receive them for ever

into the shelter of His most Sacred Heart.
