Protector of Homes

Protector of Homes

St. Joseph, protect our home. Pour forth from heaven blessings on our family. Remain in our midst. Help us to live in love and harmony, in peace and joy. May the wholesome fear of God strengthen us that virtue may adorn what we do and our way may lead to heaven.

To you this day I give the key to our dwelling place. Lock out all things that could do us harm. Lock my home and my loved ones with me in the hearts of Jesus and Mary. This I beg of you, that our days may be like your days in the holy home at Nazareth. Amen.

Notes

May 1st is dedicated to St. Joseph the Worker. While laboring as a carpenter, he was also protecting the child Jesus and the Blessed Mother. This prayer pleads for his protection over the home.
