Joseph--Nat. Story

Feast of St. Joseph  

O glorious Saint Joseph,

remind all who work
that they are not alone
in their labor, their joy
or their sufferings,
because Christ is by our side,
with Mary, his Mother and ours,
supporting them,
wiping sweat from their brow,
and setting a value on their toil.

Teach all who work to use their labor,
as you did, as a supreme means
of attaining holiness.

From a prayer by Pope John XXIII
