Saint Joseph, cast your solemn gaze upon the devil and all his minions and protect us with your mighty staff. You fled through the night to avoid the devil’s wicked designs; now with the power of God, smite the demons as they flee from you! Grant special protection, we pray, for children, fathers, mothers, families, and the dying. By God’s grace, no demon dares approach while you are near so we beg of you Saint Joseph, always be near us! Amen. We pray to the Lord, Lord hear our prayer.
