Consecration to Saint Joseph (of Children by Their Parents)

O glorious St. Joseph,

to you God committed the care

of His only begotten Son

amid the many dangers of this world.

We come to you

and ask you to take under your special protection

the children God has given us.

Through holy baptism they became children of God

and members of His holy Church.

We consecrate them to you today,

that through this consecration

they may become your foster children.

Guard them, guide their steps in life,

form their hearts after the hearts of Jesus and Mary.

St. Joseph,

who felt the tribulation and worry of a parent

when the child Jesus was lost,

protect our dear children for time and eternity.

May you be their father and counselor.

let them, like Jesus,

grow in age as well as in wisdom

and grace before God and men.

Preserve them from the corruption of this world,

and give us the grace one day

to be united with them in heaven forever.

Amen.
