Saint Joseph the Worker
Saint Joseph is the Model and Protector of the worker who earns his bread by the sweat of his brow.

Prayer of Saint Pius X
to the glorious St. Joseph, model of workers:

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.
