We speak to you, O blessed Joseph,
our protector on earth,
as one who knows the value of work
and the response of our calling.
We address you through your holy spouse,
the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God,
and knowing the fatherly affection
with which you embraced Our Lord Jesus,
ask that you may assist us in our needs,
and strengthen us in our labors.
By our promise to do worthily our daily tasks,
keep us from failure,
from a greedy mind,
and from a corrupt heart.
Be our watchful guardian in our work,
our defender and strength
against injustice and errors.
As we look to your example
and seek your assistance,
support us in our every effort,
that we may come to everlasting rest
with you in the blessedness of heaven.
