The Preface of Saint Joseph

[Latin Text]

[P] World without end.
[C] Amen.
[P] The Lord be with you
[C] And with thy spirit.
[P] Lift up your hearts.
[C]
We have lifted them up to the Lord.
[P] Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
[C] It is meet and just.

It is truly meet and just, right and availing unto salvation, that we should in all times and in all places give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty and everlasting God; and magnify Thee with due praise, bless, and proclaim Thee [on the feast of] [in venerating] blessed Joseph; who, as a just man, was given by Thee to be the spouse of 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, Jesus Christ our Lord, conceived by the overshadowing of the Holy Ghost. Through whom the angels praise Thy majesty, the dominions worship it, the powers stand in awe. The heavens and the heavenly hosts with the blessed seraphim join together in celebrating their joy. With these we pray thee, join our voices also, while saying with humble voice:

 

[All] Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are filled with Thy glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed + is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
