Saint Joseph, Guardian of Our Lord

March 19 – St. Joseph, Guardian of Our Lord –

Almighty God, from the house of your servant David you raised up Joseph to be the guardian of your incarnate Son and the husband of his mother, Mary. Grant us grace to follow the example of this faithful workman in heeding your counsel and obeying your commands; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
