Prayer to St. Joseph for Workers
faithful like the Patriarchs before you
bridge to the new covenant by your royal lineage,
protector of the Holy Family,
we come to you in our need
your actions in unexpected moments of trial
always showed your complete trust in God,
bless us with that same grace.
you journeyed to a foreign land
to care for your family,
bless all who must do the same
to provide for those they love.
sanctified by your labor,
bless all who work
and all those who are seeking employment
St. Joseph the Worker
Patron of our Shine
may we always treasure the faith
bequeathed to us by our families and our cultures.
We pray that all who honor St. Joseph at this Shrine
may be assisted by his patronage in this life
and by following his example,
may reach eternal happiness.
We ask this in the name of Jesus,
Our Lord and Brother. Amen
