Workers and those seeking for employment
O Christ’s dear Mother, bless;
And bless, ye Saints on high,
All meek and simple souls
That to Saint Joseph cry.
Dear St. Joseph, the foster father of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and husband of Our Blessed Mother Mary, by the works of your hands you supplied greatly the needs of the Holy Family of Nazareth; you contributed immensely towards the growth of the human community of Nazareth and you taught mankind generally that there is dignity in labour. By your office and intercession, aid all workers especially those engaged in very tedious works, free them from emotional challenges and traumatising experiences. More so, transform the hearts and minds of those who engage in evil in the name of making ends meet to use their intelligence for the good of the society and the glorification of their creator. Finally, assist the teeming unemployed to become initiative, creative and put their creative imagination in use in order to become gainfully employed and remain resourceful and thankful all the days of their lives. Amen. St. Joseph – pray for workers and those seeking for employment! Happy New Month!
