Glorious St. Joseph, model of all who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace
to work in the spirit
in expiation of my many sins; to work conscientiously by placing love of duty
above my inclinations; to gratefully and joyously deem it an honor to employ and to develop by labor the gifts
I have received from God, to work methodically, peacefully, and in moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from it through weariness or difficulty to work; above all, with purity of intention
and unselfishness, having unceasingly before my eyes death and the account I have to render of time
lost, talents unused, good
not done, and vain complacency in success, so baneful to the work of God. All for Jesus, all for Mary, all to imitate thee, O patriarch
St. Joseph! This shall be my motto for life

O Dearly beloved Word of God, teach me to be generous, to serve Thee as Thou dost deserve, to give without counting the cost, to fight without fretting at my wounds, to labor without seeking rest, to spend myself without looking for any reward other than that of knowing that I do Thy holy will. Amen. continue reading
