Dear St. Joseph,
You so humbly, faithfully, worked to serve others, but most importantly, to serve your own family. You are an example for al parents, both actual and spiritual, as they tend to those in their care.
Intercede for them in their needs, encourage them in their struggles, rejoice with them in the fruits of their labors, and carry with them the burden of their responsibilities. Ask our Lord to bless them, protect them, and sustain them. St. Joseph, be their ever-present companion, co-worker, and guide.
Intercede for all workers in the difficulties of their daily lives, especially for the unemployed, in their anxieties for tomorrow. May we seize each opportunity to share our talents with others and know the dignity and satisfaction that you offer us through our work.
