Catholic Prayer: Prayer to Saint Joseph by Pope Francis
Pope Francis concluded with this prayer in his Apostolic Letter, Patris Corde--With the Heart of a Father announcing the Year of St. Joseph from December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021:
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man. Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.
