Year of St. Joseph

On 8th December 2020, Pope Francis issued an Apostolic Letter entitled Patris Corde (‘With a Father’s Heart’). He has proclaimed 2021 as a special ‘Year of St. Joseph’.

At the conclusion of his Letter, he adds a prayer to St Joseph, which he encourages all of us to pray together:

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.
