Celebration of thanksgiving on the 150th anniversary of the old St. Joseph Church

Glorious Patriarch Saint Joseph

You who, in the company of the Divine Jesus

and of your spouse Mary Most Holy,

knew the bitterness of emigration

in your flight to Egypt,

accompany along the roads of the world

our countless brothers and sisters who, far from their homeland,

struggle to overcome the difficulties of a life

many times both agonizing and heroic.

Watch over their faith. Nourish their hope.

Keep them steadfast in their love for God.

Bless, with the abundance they need,

the merits drawn from their departure and the efforts of their labour.

Make fruitful the sincere and simple journey of their lives,

so that among all peoples,

the bonds of a true Christian brotherhood

might be forged and strengthened.
