Prayer of Leo XIII to Saint Joseph for the Needs of the Holy Church

Saint Joseph fulfilled his role as father, protector and provider of the Holy Family to perfection. All his attention was constantly focused on Jesus. The Church is the continuation of Christ on earth. Saint Joseph is therefore the Father, Patron, Protector of the Holy Church.
O Blessed Joseph, we have recourse to you in our tribulation and, having implored the help of your Most Holy Bride, we also confidently seek your patronage. In the name of the affection which united you to the Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God; in the name of the fatherly love with which you surrounded the Child Jesus, we beg you to look favourably on the inheritance acquired by Jesus Christ at the price of His blood, and to assist us with your power and help in our needs. O most vigilant guardian of the Holy Family, protect the privileged family of Jesus Christ; most loving Father, preserve us from all contagion of corruption and error; most powerful protector, be of help to us and assist us from Heaven in our struggle against the power of darkness. And just as in the past you snatched the Infant Jesus from us at the risk of death, defend the holy Church of God today against the snares of the enemy and against all adversity, and cover us all with your constant protection, so that we may, following your example and with your help, live holy, die godly and obtain eternal bliss in Heaven! Amen. O St. Joseph, our guide, protect us! Protect the holy Church!
