Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The First Wednesdays of each month are dedicated to in Honor of St. Joseph,
please attend Mass and offer the holy Communion in his honor with this prayer:
“Lord Jesus I offer You this communion
in Honor of St. Joseph for a happy death
for myself and all my family members.”
Prayer to be said after receiving communion:
O Glorious St. Joseph, behold I choose thee today
for my special patron in life and at the hour of my death.
Preserve and increase in me the spirit of prayer
and fervor in the service of God.
Remove far from me every kind of sin;
obtain for me and family that my death
may not come upon me unawares,
but that I may have time to confess my sins
sacramentally and to bewail them with
a most perfect understanding
and a most sincere and perfect contrition,
in order that I may breathe forth my soul
into the hands of Jesus and Mary.

Prayer to St. Joseph (over 1900 years old)
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 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 Loving of Fathers.
O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating
you and Jesus asleep in your arms.
I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart.
Press him to 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.

Say for nine consecutive mornings for anything you may desire. It has seldom been known to fail.
