Christ shield me this day: Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ on my right, Christ on my left, Christ when I lie down, Christ when I arise, Christ in the heart of every person who thinks of me, Christ in the eye that sees me, Christ in the ear that hears me.



In commemoration of his Feast Day on March 19:

    Joseph, model for fathers, Firm in teaching and patient in mentoring Jesus, Pray for us.

    Joseph, patron of workers, dedicated to using your gifts and praising God in the work of your hands, Pray for us.

    Joseph, patron of a happy death, entering eternity in the presence of Jesus and the arms of Mary, Pray for us.
