Petitions for St. Joseph’s Blessing
(offered for Archbishop Allen Vigneron)
Bless me, O dearly beloved Father, St. Joseph; bless my body and my soul; bless my resolutions, my words and deeds, all my actions and omissions, my every step; bless all that I possess, all my interior and exterior goods, that all may redound to the greater honor of God. Bless me for time and eternity, and preserve me from every sin.
Obtain for me the grace to make atonement for all my sins by love and contrition here on earth, so that after my last breath I may, without delay, prostrate at thy feet, return thee thanks in Heaven for all the love and goodness thou, O dearest father, hast shown me here below. Amen.
