Saint Joseph, just man among the just,
protector of God’s family
all over the Universe,
protect the Church of the Earth in
this important and delicate time.
Intercede with God
so that the Church might always
choose the right path, overcoming with peace
the difficulties, provocations and
obstacles, which the spirit of the world
places before her.
May the burning fire of your heart
put us aflame with true faith,
sure hope and sublime love,
so that we might walk with you and Mary,
your Virgin Spouse,
the difficult paths of our time.
Guide us as you guided Little Jesus,
holding Him by the hand.
You helped Him grow and become a man.
Help us, too, to become true children of God
for the glory and honour
of the Most Blessed Trinity.
