Let us pray.


All Holy Father, in the wonder of your wisdom and love you decreed that your Son should be born of a woman and be subject to the guidance of two of your humble creatures, Mary and Joseph. Grant that we may enter more and more into the mystery of the incarnate Word and with Him lead a hidden life on earth, until escorted by His Virgin Mother and Foster Father, we may joyously enter your home in heaven. Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
