St. Joseph the Worker Legacy Society
St. Joseph the Worker Prayer
Joseph, by the work of your hands and the sweat of your brow
you supported Jesus and Mary,
and had the Son of God as your fellow worker.
Teach me to work as you did with patience and perseverance,
for God and for those whom God has given me to support.
Teach me to see in my fellow workers, the Christ who desires to be in them,
that I may always be charitable and forbearing towards all grant me
to look upon work with the eyes of faith, so that
I shall recognize it in my share and God's own creative activity
and in God's work of our redemption.
When it is pleasant and productive, remind me to give thanks to God for it,
and when it is burdensome, teach me to offer it to God
and for reparation for my sins and the sins of the world.
