Prayer for the Intercession of Saint Joseph
O Joseph, virgin father of Jesus, pure spouse of the Virgin Mary, pray for us daily to the Son of God, that, armed with the weapons of His grace, we may fight as we ought in life, and be crowned by Him in death.
(Indulgence of 100 days, twice a day.–Pius X, Nov. 26, 1906)

Prayer for Holy Purity
Guardian of virgins, and holy father Joseph, to whose faithful custody Christ Jesus, innocence itself, and Mary, virgin of virgins, were committed; I pray and beseech thee, by these dear pledges, Jesus and Mary, that, being preserved from all uncleanness, I may with spotless mind, pure heart, and chaste body, ever serve Jesus and Mary most chastely all the days of my life. Amen.
(Indulgence of 100 days, once a day.–Pius IX, Feb. 4, 1877.)


His Holiness Pope Pius IX,, by a decree, Urbis et Orbis, of the Holy Congregation of Indulgences of April 27, 1865, extended a Plenary Indulgence, under usual conditions, to any devotional exercise which shall be made every day in the month of March in honor of St. Joseph, just as in the case of the pious exercise in the month of May in honor of most Holy Mary.
