For the Preservation of the Deposit of the Faith!
For the Kingdom of God to come!
Glorious St. Joseph, model of all those who are committed to work, obtain for me the grace to work in a spirit of penance for the expiation of my many sins; to work with a conscience, putting the practice of duty above my inclinations; to work with gratitude and joy, considering it an honor to use and develop through work the gifts received from God; to work with order, peace, moderation and patience, without ever backing down in the face of weariness and difficulties; to work above all with purity of intention and with detachment from myself, having constantly in sight death and the account I will have to render of the time lost, of the talents unused, of the good omitted and of the vain complacency in success, so fatal to the work of God. All for Jesus, all for Mary, all in imitation of you, Patriarch St. Joseph! This will be my motto in life and in death. Amen.
Mon Jésus, pardon et miséricorde!
Par les mérites de Vos saintes Plaies et les douleurs de Votre sainte Mère.
My Jesus, pardon and mercy!
By the merits of Thy holy Wounds and the sorrows of Thy Mother.
