O glorious St. Joseph,
foster father of Jesus,
you did provide for the Holy Family.
We commit to your protection all our crops and farm industries.
Deign, we beseech you, to intercede in our behalf
with Almighty God,
Who rules the seasons,
so that our fields being safe from pests and favored by the weather
may yield abundant crops
that will allow us to supply the wants of life.
Thus freed from earthly worries
may we after your example
apply all our thoughts to eternal life.
We beseech you
to instill a love of the land into the hearts of our youth
for their own salvation and that of Christian unity
so that we may all share hereafter
in the same blissful life you enjoy in heaven.
