We are in the midst of the Year of St. Joseph, patron of the universal Church.
In 1955, Pope Pius XII instituted the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker. This celebration has been observed on the first day of May every year since that promulgation.
Assumption Church in Broadview Heights will offer a Traditional Latin High Mass in honor of the renowned offspring of David, the light of Patriarchs, the spouse of the Mother of God, the chaste guardian of the Virgin, the foster father of the Son of God, the diligent protector of Christ, the head of the Holy Family, the mirror of patience, the lover of poverty, the model of artisans, the glory of home life, the guardian of virgins, the pillar of families, the solace of the wretched, the hope of the sick, the patron of the dying, the terror of demons, and the protector of Holy Church.

Latin high mass for the feast of St. Joseph the worker
Cleveland TLM Friends recommends this particular prayer to St. Joseph:
Oh, St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. Oh, St. Joseph, do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that, having engaged here below your Heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of fathers. Oh, St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for us. Amen.
The prayer to St. Joseph is said to be almost 2000 years old. An imprimatur has been carried with it.
Say for nine consecutive mornings for anything you may desire that is of God’s will. It has seldom been known to fail.
This prayer was found in the fiftieth year of Our Lord Jesus Christ. In 1505, it was sent by the Pope to Emperor Charles when he was going into battle.
Who ever reads this prayer or hears it or carries it, will never die a sudden death, nor be drowned, nor will poison take effect on them. They will not fall into the hands of the enemy nor be burned in any fire, nor will they be defeated in battle.
Make this prayer known everywhere.
Most Rev. George W. Ahr
Bishop of Trenton
