NOVENA - Day 2
Good Saint Joseph our Patron and our Guide. May you intercede today on behalf of those who struggle this day to find employment, those who struggle with the burden of tasks before them, and those who struggle to trust in your Divine help.
"To be perfect in our vocation is nothing else than to fulfill the duties which our state of life obliges us to perform, and to accomplish them well, and only for the honor and love of God.
- Saint Francis de Sales
Daily Prayer to St. Joseph the Worker
Glorious Saint Joseph, pattern of all who are devoted to toil, obtain for me the grace to toil in the spirit of penance, in order thereby to atone for my many sins; to toil conscientiously, putting devotion to duty before my own inclinations; to labor with thankfulness and joy, deeming it an honor to employ and to develop, by my labor, the gifts I have received from Almighty God; to work with order, peace, moderation, and patience, without every shrinking from weariness and difficulties; to work above all with a pure intention and with detachment from self, having always before my eyes the hour of death and the accounting which I must then render of time ill-spent, of talents unemployed, of good undone, and of my empty pride in success, which is so fatal to the work of God.
Saint Joseph the Worker, pray for us.

After leaving my full-time job to tend to family needs, the Lord placed me here at Joseph's House, a surprise and a joy.
