Today we celebrate the Solemnity of St. Joseph, spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Together we pray the words from the Collect at today’s Mass:

“Grant, we pray, almighty God, that by St. Joseph’s intercession your Church may constantly watch over the unfolding of the mysteries of human salvation, whose beginnings you entrusted to his faithful care.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.”
