Saint Joseph, a just and obedient man, cheerful and faithful to God’s will, by marrying the Virgin Mary, by naming Jesus, by shepherding the Holy Family through your pilgrimage from Egypt and take them safely to Nazareth and give them sustenance and protection there, makes you worthy of a true father and son of God, a hardworking man of great value. I pray that, following your example, I will also be a pillar for my family and a good worker.

Opening prayer

Oh glorious Saint Joseph, model of all those who dedicate themselves to work, get me the grace to work with conscience putting the call of duty on my natural inclinations, to work with gratitude and joy, in a spirit of penance for the remission of my sins, considering that it is an honor to use and develop through work, the gifts received from God, to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever having to retreat before weariness and difficulties, to work above all with purity of intention and detachment from oneself, always having the death before my eyes, and the account that I must render of the lost time, of the wasted talents, of the omitted good, of the vain complacency in the success, so fatal for the work of God.

All for Jesus, all through of Mary, everything according to your example.

Oh Patriarch, Saint Joseph, this It will be my watchword in life and in death. Amen. (Prayer composed by Pope St. Pius X)
