God our Father,
Creator and Ruler of the universe,
in every age you call men and women
to develop and use their gifts
for the good of others.
With St. Joseph as our example and patron
help us to do the work you have asked
and come to the rewards you have promised.
We ask this through our Lord,
Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you
and the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever,
