Prayer: “To Joseph” from Pius X
O, St. Joseph, model of all those devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work conscientiously, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering it an honor to employ and develop by means of labor the gifts received from God. May I work with order, peace, moderation, and patience without ever shrinking from weariness and difficulties. All for Jesus, all through Mary, all after your example.
