Let Us Pray...

In Praise of Saint Joseph

 

Joseph, patron saint of workers,

blending skill with charity,

silent carpenter, we praise you!

Joining work with honesty,

you taught Christ with joy to labor, sharing his nobility.

 

Joseph, close to Christ and Mary,

lived with them in poverty,

shared with them their home and labor,

worked with noble dignity.

May we seek God’s will as you did,

leader of his family!

 

Joseph, inspiration for workers,

man of faith and charity,

make us honest, humble, faithful,

strong with Christ’s true liberty,

Make our labor and our leisure

fruitful to eternity!

 

*Yesterday, 1st May is the Feast Day for St. Joseph the Worker.  He is the patron saint to The Universal Church,

Fathers, The dying, Social Justice and Workers.
