SHOULD SAY PRAYER FOR WORK TO ST. JOSEPH OVER OUR DAILY LABOURS

SHOULD SAY PRAYER FOR WORK TO ST. JOSEPH OVER OUR DAILY LABOURS

Glorious St. Joseph,

model of all those who are devoted to labour,

obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously,

putting the call of duty above my many sins;

to work with thankfulness and joy,

considering it an honour to employ and develop,

by means of labour,

the gifts received from God;

to work with order,

peace, prudence and patience,

never surrendering to weariness or difficulties;

to work, above all,

with purity of intention,

and with detachment from self,

having always death before my eyes

and the account which I must render of time lost,

of talents wasted,

of good omitted,

of vain complacency in success

so fatal to the work of God.

All for Jesus,

all for Mary,

all after thy example,

O Patriarch Joseph.

Such shall be my motto in life and death. AMEN

 

 

Hail Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with thee. Blessed

art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,

 Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now,

and at the hour of our death.

 

Glory be, to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

a world without end. AMEN.

 

Blessing Sylvester
