Novena to St Joseph the Worker – Day Four – 25 April

Novena to St Joseph the Worker – 25 April

“We are often called upon to do ‘mindless’ work.   But our spiritual task is to transform it.   Emptying the trash can be considered mindless but if I see it as a contribution to the well-being of my family, it can be immensely significant to me.”

Msgr Lorenzo Albacete

Let us Pray:

DAY FOUR

DAY 4 NOVENA STJOSEPHTHEWORKER

Glorious St Joseph,
in your diligent daily labour,
you provided for the household
of the Holy Family.
Patron of all workers,
you model how work is a
participation in God’s own activity.
Silent and glorious carpenter of Nazareth,
model of workers, by the work of your
hands you gave your contribution to the work of the Creator,
you earned your living, and
you provided for the needs of the Holy Family.
Intercede for all workers, in the difficulties
of their daily lives especially for the unemployed,
in their anxieties for tomorrow,
so that through the guidance of God,
the great Architect and Builder, they all
may use their strength and talents
to make visible God’s new creation,
to offer a concrete service to society
and to earn wages worthy of their efforts.
With confidence and trust
we make our intention
(make your intention)
I pray to you, dear St Joseph, through our Lord,
Jesus Christ, your dearly beloved foster Son,
in union with the Father and the Holy ,
one God for ever and ever.
Amen

This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions.
