ST JOSEPH ARTISAN

Joseph 7

“St. Joseph loved his trade. He knew it thoroughly. He reverenced it in its relationship to the Law. Before God, labor is not a necessity; it calls for pride, nobility, a spirit of reparation. There is nothing slavish about it. On the contrary it is a kind of prayer, a way of finding God, a means of salvation.”      Michel Gasnier,op

St Joseph, pray for us.  Ask God to give us the wisdom, virtue and love which sustained you in your toil-filled days.  Inspire us with thoughts of faith, peace, moderation, and thrift, so that together with our daily bread, we will always seek spiritual goods and heaven. Amen
