Act of Consecration to St. Joseph
by St. Bernardine of Siena
Consecration to St. Joseph:
O my beloved St. Joseph, adopt me as thy child.
Take charge of my salvation;
watch over me day and night;
preserve me from the occasion of sin;
obtain for me purity of body.
Through thy intercession with Jesus,
grant me a spirit of sacrifice,
burning love for Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament,
and a sweet and tender love for Mary, my mother.
Saint Joseph, be with me living, be with me dying,
and obtain for me a favorable judgement from Jesus,
my merciful Saviour.
