O dearest St. Joseph,
I consecrate myself to thy honor
and give myself to thee,
that thou mayest always be
my father, my protector, and my guide
in the way of salvation.
Obtain for me a great purity of heart
and a fervent love of the interior life.
After thine example,
may I do all my actions
for the greater glory of God,
in union with the Divine Heart of Jesus
and the Immaculate Heart of Mary!
And do thou, O Blessed St. Joseph,
pray for me that I may share
in the peace and joy of thy holy death
