Prayer on the Back of the Card
O glorious patriarch, St Joseph, humble
and just craftsman of Nazareth, you gave to
all Christians, but particularly to us, an
example of a perfect life of assiduous work
and of admirable unity with Mary and Jesus.
Help us in our daily work so that we might
find in it an effective means of glorifying
our Lord, of sanctifying ourselves and of
being useful to the society in which we live.
Obtain for us from our Lord, O beloved
protector, humility and simplicity of heart,
attachment to work, benevolence towards
those who work with us, compliance with
the divine will in the difficulties of this life
and joy in bearing them, consciousness of
our specific social mission and the sense of
our social responsibility, a spirit of discipline
and prayer, docility and respect for our superiors,
fraternity towards our equals, support in times
of stress, charity and indulgence for our dependents.
Help us to follow your example and to
keep our sight fixed on Mary, our Mother,
your gentle wife, who wove silently in a
corner of your humble shop, smiling sweetly.
May we never avert our eyes from Jesus, who
worked with you at your carpenter’s bench, so
that we may in like manner lead peaceful and
holy lives on earth, the prelude to the eternally
happy one which awaits us in heaven for ever more.
Pope Pius XII
