Archbishop Lucas asks local Catholics to invoke St. Joseph

March 11, 2020 by David Hazen

       In response to the continued spread of the novel coronavirus, Archbishop George J. Lucas is asking Catholics throughout the Archdiocese of Omaha to invoke the intercession of St. Joseph on Thursday, March 19. That day is the Solemnity of St. Joseph, who is the patron saint of the Universal Church.

       On March 11, all priests of the archdiocese were sent the following prayer to share with their parishioners.

Prayers for the World

During the Outbreak of the Coronavirus

To you, O blessed Joseph, do we come in our tribulation.

Through that charity which bound you
to the immaculate Virgin Mother

of God and through the paternal love
with which you embraced the Child Jesus,
we humbly beg you graciously to regard the inheritance
which Jesus Christ has purchased by his Blood,
and with your power and strength

to aid us in our necessities.

O most loving father, ward off from us
every contagion of error
and corrupting influence;
O our most mighty protector, be propitious to us
and from heaven assist us
in our struggle with the power of darkness;

and, as once you rescued the Child Jesus from deadly peril,
so now protect God’s children
from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity;

shield, too, each one of us by your constant protection.
