A faithful and wise servant, whom the Lord appointed to be the consolation of His Mother, the nursing-father of His own flesh, and alone in all the earth the most faithful fellow helper of great counsel.
V. Behold a man without blame, a true worshipper of God.
R. Abstaining from every evil work, and abiding in his innocence.
Let us pray.
Assist us, O Lord, we beseech Thee, by the merits of the spouse of Thy most holy Mother, that what of ourselves we are unable to obtain, may be granted to us by his intercession. Who liveth and reigneth, world without end.
~ Commemoration of St. Joseph from the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
