Sunday & Wednesday: Prayer to St. Joseph,

Patron of the Universal Church

O Glorious St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, we implore thee to obtain from the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the preservation of our remnant Catholic Community and all its members, from all division, dissension, and discord. Do thou, faithful guardian of the Holy Family, grant that our spiritual family – all the members of our remnant Catholic Community – shall ever be united in the bonds of faith and charity, and shall remain always of one heart, mind and soul in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary. St. Joseph, special protector of our Community, do thou guide, bless and protect us against the attacks of all our enemies and detractors. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, One God, forever, unto ages of ages. Amen.

Monday: PRAYER FOR A LIVELY FAITH

O happy, blissful St. Joseph, heir of the faith of all the Patriarchs, vouchsafe to obtain for us this beautiful and precious virtue. Increase in us a lively faith, the foundation of all sanctity, that faith without which no one can be pleasing to God. Obtain for us that faith which triumphs over all temptations of the world and conquers human respect, which can be shaken by nothing, and which is directed solely toward God. Cause us, after thine example, to live by faith, to subject our hearts and understandings to God, that one day, we may behold in Heaven what we now firmly believe on earth. Amen.
