THE ROSARY OF SAINT JOSEPH

 The Rosary of Saint Joseph may be prayed the same way as the Marian Rosary.

 
1. THE SIGN OF THE CROSS
2. I BELIEVE IN GOD…
3. OUR FATHER (On the large bead)
4. IN PLACE OF THE HAIL MARY, SAY“Joseph, son of David, and husband of Mary; we honour you, guardian of the Redeemer, and we adore the child you named Jesus.”
“Saint Joseph, Patron of the universal church, pray for us, that like you, we may live totally dedicated to the interests of the Savior. Amen.” 
5. GLORY BE…
6. MYSTERIES OF THE ST. JOSEPH ROSARY
i. Betrothal to Mary (Mt 1:18).
ii. Annunciation to Joseph (Mt 1:19-21).
iii. Birth and Naming of Jesus (Mt 1:22-25).
iv. Flight into Egypt (Mt 2:13-15).
v. Hidden Life at Nazareth (Mt 2:23; Lk 2:51-52).
7. AT THE END OF THE 5TH DECADE, SAY THE FOLLOWING: 
To you, O Blessed Joseph, we come in our trials, and having asked the help of your most holy Spouse, we confidently ask your patronage also. Through that sacred bond of charity which united you to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God and through the fatherly love with which you embraced the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you to look graciously upon the beloved inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased by his blood, and to aid us in our necessities with your power and strength.

O most provident guardian of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ. Most beloved father, dispel the evil of falsehood and sin. Our most mighty protector, graciously assist us from heaven in our struggle with the powers of darkness. And just as you once saved the Child Jesus from mortal danger, so now defend God’s Holy Church from the snares of her enemies and from all adversity. Shield each one of us by your constant protection, so that, supported by your example and your help, we may be able to live a virtuous life, to die a holy death, and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven. Amen.
