O God, who in Thine unspeakable providence didst vouchsafe to choose blessed Joseph for Thy most holy Mother’s spouse: grant, we beseech Thee, that we who revere him as our protector upon earth, may become worthy to have him for our intercessor in heaven. Who livest

Epistle

Lectio

Lesson from the book of Genesis
Gen 49:22-26
Joseph was a growing son, a growing son, and comely to behold: the daughters run to and fro upon the wall. But they that held darts provoked him, and quarreled with him, and envied him. His bow rested upon the strong, and the bands of his arms and his hands were loosed, by the hands of the mighty one of Jacob: thence he came forth a pastor, the stone of Israel. The God of thy father shall be thy helper, and the Almighty shall bless thee with the blessings of heaven above, with the blessings of the deep that lieth beneath, with the blessings of the breasts and of the womb. The blessings of thy father are strengthened with the blessings of his fathers: until the desire of the everlasting hills shall come; may they be upon the head of Joseph, and upon the crown of the Nazarite among his brethren.

Léctio libri Genesis
Gen 49:22-26
Fílius accréscens Joseph, fílius accréscens, et decórus aspéctu: fíliæ discurrérunt super murum. Sed exasperavérunt eum, et jurgáti sunt, inviderúntque illi habéntes jácula. Sedit in forti arcus ejus, et dissolúta sunt víncula brachiórum et mánum illíus per manus poténtis Jacob: inde pastor egréssus est, lapis Israël. Deus patris tui erit adjútor tuus, et Omnípotens benedícet tibi benedictiónibus cœli desuper,benedictiónibus abýssi jacéntis deórsum, benedictiónibus úberum et vulvæ. Benedictiónes patris tui confortátæ sunt benedictiónibus patrum ejus, donec veníret desidérium cóllium æternórum: fiant in cápite Joseph, et in vértice Nazarǽi inter fratres suos.

Gospel

Evangelium

Continuation ☩ of the Holy Gospel according to Luke
Luke 3:21-23
At that time: It came to pass, when all the people were baptized, that Jesus also being baptized and praying, heaven was opened: and the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape as a dove upon Him: and a voice came from heaven: Thou art My beloved Son, in Thee I am well pleased. And Jesus Himself was beginning about the age of thirty years, being (as it was supposed) the son of Joseph.

Sequéntia ☩ sancti Evangélii secúndum Lucam.
Luc 3:21-23
In illo témpore: Factum est autem, cum baptizarétur omnis pópulus, et Jesu baptizáto et oránte, apértum est cœlum: et descéndit Spíritus Sanctus corporáli spécie sicut colúmba in ipsum: et vox de cœlo facta est: Tu es Fílius meus diléctus, in te complá cui mihi. Et ipse Jesus erat incípiens quasi annórum trigínta, ut putabátur fílius Joseph.

Supported by the patronage of the spouse of Thy most holy Mother, we beseech Thy clemency, O Lord: that Thou wouldst make our hearts despise all earthly things, and love Thee, the true God, with perfect charity:
Who livest…

Preface

Prefatio

St. Joseph
It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God: and that we should magnify with due praises, bless and proclaim Thee on the solemnity of blessed Joseph; who, being a just man, was given by Thee as a Spouse to the Virgin Mother of God, and, as a faithful and prudent servant was set over Thy Family, that, with fatherly care, he might guard Thine only-begotten Son, conceived by the overshadowing of the Holy Ghost, even Jesus Christ, our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, and the Powers stand in awe. The heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with them we entreat Thee that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted, while we say with lowly praise:

de S. Joseph
Vere dignum et justum est, æquum et salutáre, nos tibi semper et ubíque grátias ágere: Dómine sancte, Pater omnípotens, ætérne Deus: Et te in Veneratióne beáti Joseph débitis magnificáre præcóniis, benedícere et prædicáre. Qui et vir justus, a te Deíparæ Vírgini Sponsus est datus: et fidélis servus ac prudens, super Famíliam tuam est constitútus: ut Unigénitum tuum, Sancti Spíritus obumbratióne concéptum, paterna vice custodíret, Jesum Christum, Dóminum nostrum. Per quem majestátem tuam laudant Angeli, adórant Dominatiónes, tremunt Potestátes. Cæli cælorúmque Virtútes ac beáta Séraphim sócia exsultatióne concélebrant. Cum quibus et nostras voces ut admítti júbeas, deprecámur, súpplici confessióne dicéntes:
