As a community, we take Saint Joseph, Most Pure, Most Obedient, and Most Patient, the Protector of the Virgin, as our Model and Protector. To his intercession we entrust our temporal needs. To him we commend our vocations, both relying on his care for perseverance in our vocations and for his guidance of those who will join us. During his month, we turn to him in thanksgiving for all the graces he has obtained for us and beseech him to intercede for us in our need. It is our custom to pray to him each day as we begin our daily labors, using this prayer:
Glorious Saint Joseph
All for Jesus, all through Mary, all in imitation of thee, O Patriarch Joseph!
This shall be my motto in life and in death. Amen.
