HOLY FAMILY, THE 1ST DOMESTIC CHURCH,
UNITE AND PROTECT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
unite the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Protect her from Satan.
May all the faithful be united with Pope Francis,
for we firmly believe that you appointed Peter and His successors as your Vicar on earth.
May we reject anything which causes disunity which never comes from God, but from pride instigated by the wiles of the enemy.
PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH, PATRON OF THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH
O Glorious Saint Joseph,
you were chosen by God
to be the foster father of Jesus,
the most pure spouse of Mary, ever Virgin,
and the head of the Holy Family.
You have been chosen by Christ’s Vicar
as the heavenly Patron and Protector
of the Church founded by Christ.
Protect the Sovereign Pontiff
and all bishops and priests united with him.
Be the protector of all who labour for souls
amid the trials and tribulations of this life;
and grant that all peoples of the world
may be docile to the Church
without which there is no salvation.
Dear Saint Joseph,
accept the offering I make to you.
Be my father, protector,
and guide in the way of salvation.
Obtain for me purity of heart
and a love for the spiritual life.
After your example,
let all my actions be directed
to the greater glory of God,
in union with the Divine Heart of Jesus,
the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
and your own paternal heart.
Finally, pray for me that I may share
in the peace and joy of your holy death.
SUB TUUM PRAESIDIUM
We fly to Thy protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O Glorious and Blessed Virgin.
PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL
Saint Michael Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
LORD JESUS CHRIST, GOD THE SON, REDEEMER OF THE WORLD, HEAD OF THE CHURCH, HAVE MERCY ON US!
