A Prayer To Saint Joseph

Peace be with you and happy St. Joseph’s day!  Let us ask the one who protected, taught and led Jesus to help us as well.

Dear St. Joseph, intercede with your son Jesus for us today.  
Ask him to open our hearts that we will not be too harsh toward those who do not understand as we understand. 
Ask him to open our minds that we might remember we are all at different points on the path to heaven. 
Ask him to open our lips that might unlock doors to the ongoing conversion we are all called to, through words of compassion and mercy.  
Ask him to open our eyes that we might see each encounter with a person who shares their faith with us,  in whatever form that takes,  as a blessed opportunity to share our faith with them. 
Ask him these things that we might in true humility, receive the grace to find the common ground that we share, and rejoicing in that together, build bridges to the unity God desires for his children.
Amen
