We should be ever mindful of the end of our lives, and live each day as if it might be our last. This prayer to Christ, asking Him to grant us the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph at the hour of our death, is a good evening prayer.
For the Protection of the Holy Family
Grant unto us, Lord Jesus, ever to follow the example of Thy holy Family, that in the hour of our death Thy glorious Virgin Mother together with blessed Joseph may come to meet us and we may be worthily received by Thee into everlasting dwellings: who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.
