Dearest St. Joseph,
I consecrate myself to your service. I give myself to you, that you may always be my father, my protector, and my guide in the way
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

Desiring to consecrate myself entirely to the service of the ever Blessed Virgin Mary, from whom, after God, I expect all help and assistance in life
Oh Saint Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.
Oh Saint Joseph,
An indulgence of 300 days was granted by Pope Pius VII (April 28, 1807) to those who pray these aspirations, followed by Glory Be said three times.
ANT.This is the rod in which was neither knot of original sin,
nor rind of actual guilt.
V.In thy conception, O Virgin! Thou wast immaculate.
R.Pray for us to the Father,
To you, O blessedJoseph,
do we come in our tribulation,
and having implored the help of your most holy spouse,
we confidently invoke your patronage also.
Through that charity which bound you
O Lord, I place myself in your hands and dedicate myself to you. I pledge myself to do your will in all things: To love the Lord God
