St. Joseph, Pray for Those Who Walk in the Valley of Death

O St. Joseph, virgin father of Jesus and most pure spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, pray for Marilyn and all who are sick to the same Jesus, the Son of God, that being defended by the power of His grace and striving dutifully in life, they may be crowned by Him at the hour of death.

St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, we place in thee all our interests and desires. O St. Joseph, assist Marilyn by thy powerful intercession and obtain for her all spiritual blessings through thy foster Son, Jesus Christ Our Lord.

O St. Joseph, let us never weary contemplating thee and Jesus asleep in thine arms. Let us fear not approach while He reposes near thy heart. Press Him in our name and kiss His fine head for us, and ask Him to return the kiss when we draw our dying breath.

St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for Marilyn and us.

O Blessed Joseph, you gave your last breath in the loving embrace of Jesus and Mary. When the seal of death shall close her life, come with Jesus and Mary to aid Marilyn and all the faithful. Obtain for her and her family this solace for that hour - to die with their holy arms around her. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, we commend her soul, living and dying, into your sacred arms. Amen.
