O St. Joseph whose protection is! so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.
O St. Joseph do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all the spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power I may
offer my Thanksgiving and Homage to the most Loving of Fathers. O St. Joseph, I ‘m never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press
him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us. Amen.
Say for 9 consecutive mornings for anything you may desire. It has seldom been known to fail.
This Prayer was found in the fiftieth year of Our Lord Jesus Christ. In 1500’s it was sent by the Pope to Emperor Charles when he
was going into battle.
Whoever reads this prayer or hears it or carries it, will never die a sudden death, nor be drowned, nor will poison take effect on them. They
will not fall into the hands of the enemy nor be burned in any fire, nor will they be defeated in battle.
“Make this prayer known everywhere.”
Rev. George W. Ahr Bishop of Trenton
