PRAYER TO OBTAIN THE GRACE OF LABOURING HOLILY

PRAYER TO OBTAIN THE GRACE OF LABOURING HOLILY

O blessed St Joseph, whose life was passed in toil and prayer, obtain for me the grace, I beseech thee, to sanctify my work by purity of intention, by remembrance of God’s presence and by frequent prayer.

Teach me to be contented with my lot, and if temptation comes to me to envy those who are above me or richer than myself, obtain for me the grace to despise it, and, only remembering thy life of humble toil, to desire only to imitate thee in the company of Jesus and Mary. Amen.

– From: St Anthony’s Treasury, 1916
