Novena Prayers to Saint Joseph

O glorious Saint Joseph, faithful follower of Jesus Christ,
to thee do we raise our hearts and hands to implore thy
powerful intercession in obtaining from the benign Heart
of Jesus all the helps and graces necessary for our
spiritual and temporal welfare, particularly the grace of a
happy death and the favors we now implore—the
spiritual and temporal needs of our parish, our school,
our seminary and our convent. O glorious Saint Joseph,
through the love thou bearest to Jesus Christ and for the
glory of His name, hear our prayers and obtain our
petitions. Jesus, Mary and Joseph assist us. Amen.

Prayer to St. Joseph for Purity
Saint Joseph, father and guardian of virgins, into whose
faithful keeping were entrusted Innocence itself, Christ
Jesus, and Mary, the Virgin of virgins, I pray and
beseech thee through Jesus and Mary, those pledges so
dear to thee, to keep me from all uncleanness, and to
grant that my mind may be untainted, my heart pure, and
my body chaste; help me always to serve Jesus and Mary
in perfect chastity. Amen.
