O Blessed Saint Joseph,
guardian of the Child Jesus,
we pray that you will help us
in our daily troubles and tribulations
as we try to pass on to our students
all the teachings that they need,
to be able succeed in their chosen professions.
Help us to teach,
and help them to learn.
Guide us all as thou didst guide your most Holy foster Son, Jesus.
Obtain for us the graces we need,
not only to teach and to learn,
but to stay on the path shown
by the Light of Christ.
