PRAYER TO ST. JOSEPH FOR WORKERS

(Note: This prayer was taken from the booklet "Devotions to Saint Joseph" by Brian Moore, S.J., printed and published by the Society of St. Paul.)

Joseph, by the work of your hands

and the sweat of your brow,

you supported Jesus and Mary,

and had the Son of God as your fellow worker.

Teach me to work as you did,

with patience and perseverance, for God and

for those whom God has given me to support.

Teach me to see in my fellow workers

the Christ who desires to be in them,

that I may always be charitable and forbearing

towards all.

Grant me to look upon work

with the eyes of faith,

so that I shall recognise in it

my share in God's own creative activity

and in Christ's work of our redemption,

and so take pride in it.

When it is pleasant and productive,

remind me to give thanks to God for it.

Ane when it is burdensome, teach me

to offer it to God,

in reparation for my sins

and the sins of the world.
