A Prayer to St. Joseph the Worker

O Glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously, putting the call of duty above my natural inclinations, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering it an honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God, to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from weariness and difficulties, to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from self, having always death before my eyes and the account that I must render of time lost, of talents wasted, of good omitted, of vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God.
...
All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after thine example, O Patriarch, St. Joseph. Such shall be my watch-word in life and in death.

Amen.

I have been out of work since last June. I have been searching for employment and there has been nothing. I pray novena after novena. I was just on St. Jude because funds are just low and I don't know when the next check will come from or how it will come. Thank you for praying for me because some days I feel so low I just can't even ask anymore. I couldn't even finish the St Jude novena....so thank you all for prayers especially when you get down/depressed about the lack of work.

May St. Joseph the Worker watch over everyone on this website and keep us all in his good care.
