PRAYERS OF ST. JOSEPH

God our Father, creator and ruler of the universe, in every age you call us to develop and use our gifts for the good of others. With Saint Joseph as our example and guide, help us to do the work you have asked and come to the rewards you have promised. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
