Prayers

Prayer of The Green Scapular

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Pray for us now and at the hour of our death, Amen

Prayer to St. Joseph

To you, O blessed Joseph, we have recourse in our affliction. Defend, O most watchful guardian of the Holy Family, the chosen offspring of Jesus Christ. Keep from us, O most loving Father, all blight of error and corruption. Aid us from on high, most valiant defender, in this conflict with the powers of darkness; and as you once rescued the Child Jesus from great peril to His life, so now defend God’s Holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity. Shield every one of us ever under your patronage, so that, imitating your example and strengthened by your help, we may live a holy life, die a happy death, and attain to everlasting happiness in heaven. Amen.

Consecreation to Mary

Oh Mary, my queen, my mother, I give myself entirely to you this day.  To show my devotion to you, I consecrate to you this day, my eyes, my ears, my tongue, my heart, my whole being without reserve. Since I am your own, keep me and guard me as your property and possession. I love you Jesus, I love you Jesus. Thank you for loving me. Mary Mother of God, be my mother too.
