ACT OF CONSECRATION TO SAINT JOSEPH! O dearest St. Joseph, I consecrate myself to your honor & give myself to you, that you may always be my father, my protector & my guide in the way of salvation. Obtain for me a greater purity of heart & fervent love of the interior life. After your example may I do all my actions for the greater glory of God, in union with the Divine Heart of Jesus & the Immaculate Heart of Mary. O Blessed St. Joseph, pray for me, that I may share in the peace and joy of your holy death. Amen.
