Glorious St. Joseph,
model of all those who are devoted to labour,
obtain for me the grace
to work conscientiously,
putting the call of duty
above my many sins;
to work with thankfulness and joy,
considering it an honour
to employ and develop,
by means of labour,
received from God;
to work with order,
never surrendering to weariness or difficulties;
to work, above all,
with purity of intention,
and with detachment from self,
having always death before my eyes
and the account which I must render of time
of talents wasted,
of vain complacency in success
so fatal to the work of God.
All for Jesus,
all for Mary,
all after thy example,
Such shall be my motto in life
