The Preface of Saint Joseph
[P] World without end.
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.
