Happy feast day to Saint Joseph!!!
Act of Consecration to Saint Joseph
O Glorious Patriarch and Patron of the Catholic Church! O Virgin Spouse of God, and guardian and foster father of the Incarnate Word! In the presence of Jesus and Mary, I choose you this day to be my guardian and father.
O you whom God has constituted Head of the Holy Family, accept me, I beg you, though utterly unworthy, to be a poor little servant in your holy house. Present me to thy Immaculate Spouse, ask her also to accept me as a servant and to adopt me as a child. With her, teach me, you who are a master of the interior life, how to converse constantly with Jesus and how to serve Him faithfully in all things to the end of my life.
To your custody was committed the Living Bread of Heaven, to be dispensed to your starving brethren. O, with Mary help me to prepare the poor stable of my heart to receive, worthily and often, the Bread of my salvation. Let me receive it from your hands and from those of Mary, as often as I approach the Holy Table.
O my tender and watchful father, I hereby consecrate myself to you; and I firmly purpose and resolve never to leave you, and never to say or do anything, nor to suffer anyone under my charge to say or do anything, against your honor! O you head of the house of God upon earth, in faithful imitation of Jesus and Mary, I place myself and all my concerns under your care and protection. To you, after Jesus and Mary, I consecrate my body and soul with all their faculties, my spiritual progress, my home, and all my affairs and undertakings. Forsake me not, but adopt me as a servant and a child of the Holy Family. Watch over me at all times, but especially in the last awful hour of my life on earth: then visit, console, and strengthen me with Jesus and Mary, that with them and you I may sing the praises of the adorable Trinity for all eternity. Amen...
