Good St. Joseph, be our model. Obtain for us the grace to rise each morning eager to do God's will as thou rose from the profound silence of the night to obey God's command with all your heart. Thou who loved the Divine Child so tenderly and His Mother so purely, obtain for us like sentiments and an ever-increasing fidelity to the interior life.
Grant us, dear Joseph, to run life's pathway in innocent fashion:
May we forever be safe under thy blest patronage.
