O BLESSED JOSEPH, who yielded up thy last breath in the arms of Jesus and Mary, obtain for me this grace, O holy Joseph, that I may breathe forth my soul in praise, saying in spirit, if I am unable to do so in words:
“Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I give Thee my heart and my soul.” Amen.Please join the Marianist Community in praying for the repose of the souls of our recently departed. On this Feast of Saint Joseph, the Worker, we will especially remember the names of the dearly beloved who have died and whose names were shared with us in this Google Document. Not only is St. Joseph the Patron Saint of the Universal Church and of Workers, he is also the Patron Saint of a Happy Death since he was blessed to be in the company of Jesus and Mary. Although many of us could not be present at the side of our loved ones during their illnesses and death due to the pandemic, we have the confidence that Christ and Mary attended to our loved ones. May they rest in peace.
