St. Joseph




First Week of Advent

Father in heaven, our hearts desire the warmth of your love and our minds are searching for the light of your Word.

Increase our longing for Christ our Savior and give us the strength to grow in love, that the dawn of his coming may find us rejoicing in his presence and welcoming the light of his truth.

We ask this in the name of Jesus our Lord.



Second Week of Advent

Father in heaven, the day draws near when the glory of your Son will make radiant the night of the waiting world.

May the lure of greed not impede us from the joy which moves the hearts of those who seek him.

May the darkness not blind us to the vision of wisdom which fills the minds of those who find him.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.



Third Week of Advent

Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, ever faithful to your promises and ever close to your Church:

The earth rejoices in hope of the Savior's coming and looks forward with longing to his return at the end of time.

Prepare our hearths and remove the sadness that hinders us from feeling the joy which his presence will bestow, for he is Lord for ever and ever.


Fourth Week of Advent

Father, all-powerful God, your eternal Word took flesh on our earth when the Virgin Mary placed her life at the service of your plan.

Lift our minds in watchful hope to heart the voice which announces his glory and opens our minds to receive the Spirit who prepares us for his coming.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
