To St. Joseph for Purity

sjg-1 (2)

Saint Joseph, Guardian of virgins and father, to whose faithful care Christ Jesus, innocence itself, and Mary, Virgin of virgins, were entrusted, I ask and beg of thee, through these two dearest pledges, Jesus and Mary, preserve me from all defilement, and make it always possible for me unsullied in mind, pure in heart, and chaste in body, to give to Jesus and Mary my holiest service. Amen.

from Roman Catholic Daily Missal 1962
