Unhappily, the sins we have committed call down upon us the heaviest scourges: this we must confess.In what ark shall we take refuge in order to be saved? Were shall we find the blessed rainbow that shall give us comfort and hope in the midst of our afflictions" "Go to Joseph", the Eternal Father seems to say, "Go to him who took my place on earth with regard to My Son made man. I entrusted to is keeping my Son, who is the unfailing source of grace; therefore, every grace is in his hands." Pity us, then , dear Joseph, pity us, by thy great love for the almighty God, wo as been so generous to thee.
Our Father...hail Mary...Glory Be.
To which is added the Litany of S.Joseph, and the following prayer:
MOST powerful patriarch S.Joseph, patron of the universal church,which as always invoked thee in anxiety and trouble, from the exalted seat of thy glory cast a loving glance upon the whole Catholic world. Let thy fatherly heart be touched at the sight of the Mystical Spouse and the Vicar of Christ overwhelmed with sorrows and persecuted by powerful enemies. Oh, by the bitter anguish thou didst experience upon earth, dry the tears of the venerable pontiff, defend him, comfort him, intercede for him with the Giver of Peace and charity, that, all adversity being removed and all error being dissipated, the entire church may serve God in perfect liberty.
It is fitting that the "Praises of S.Joseph" be prayed the following day.
