1. Turn to St. Joseph
Tradition tells us that Joseph died peacefully in the arms of his beloved wife and foster son. Who better to turn to for intercession that we might make so blessed (which means “happy”) an end?
Prayer to St. Joseph for a Happy Death (traditional)
O Blessed Joseph, you gave your last breath in the loving embrace of Jesus and Mary. When the seal of death shall close my life, come with Jesus and Mary to aid me. Obtain for me this solace for that hour – to die with their holy arms around me. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I commend my soul, living and dying, into your sacred arms. Amen.
