Glorious St. Joseph the Worker

Columban Daily Prayer
May 1, 2023

Glorious Saint Joseph,
you are the pattern of all who work.
Obtain for me, please,
the grace to work conscientiously
and to put devotion to duty
before my selfish inclinations.
Help me to labor in thankfulness and joy,
for it is an honor to employ
and to develop by my labor the gifts
I have received from almighty God.
Grant that I may work in orderliness,
peace, moderation and patience
without shrinking from weariness and difficulties.
I offer my fatigue and perplexities
as reparation for sin.
For Jesus through Mary,
all in imitation of you, good Saint Joseph.
This shall be my motto in life and in death.
