Favorite Prayers 5

One of my longtime favorite prayers is a prayer for the dying of the day.  Since my mom was diagnosed with inoperable colon cancer, this prayer has taken on a whole new meaning for me.  No longer is is just an abstract prayer for all those who are dying, but it has become a personal prayer for a peaceful death for someone I love.

O Saint Joseph,
foster-father of Jesus Christ
and true spouse of the Virgin Mary
Pray for us,
and for the dying of this day.

Amen
