Saint Joseph the Worker
Feast Day of Saint Joseph the Worker
Glorious Saint Joseph,
You are the patron of all who work. Obtain for me, please,
the grace to work conscientiously and to put devotion to duty
before my selfish inclinations.
Grant that I may work in orderliness, peace, moderation, and patience
without shrinking from weariness and difficulties.
I offer my fatigue and perplexities as reparation for sin.
I shall work, above all, with a pure intention and with detachment from self,
having always before me the hour of death and the accounting
which I must then render of time ill-spent, of talents unemployed,
of good not done, and of empty pride in success,
which is so fatal to the work of God.
Saint Joseph, please pray for us.

A Little of This, a Little of That
Keep me away from the wisdom that does not cry, the philosophy that does not laugh, and the greatness which does not bow before children. – Gibran Khalil Gibran
From me to you with a smile.
