On this feast of St. Joseph the Worker, I am praying especially for those who are unemployed or underemployed as a consequence of this terrible situation. I encourage you to send prayer intentions via our website. I also encourage you to join me in the prayer below for those who are impacted by the pandemic.

O St. Joseph, whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires.O St. Joseph, assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your heavenly power, I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of Fathers.
O St. Joseph, I never weary of contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms; I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press Him in my name and kiss His fine head for me, and ask Him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath.
Amen.

St. Joseph the Worker, pray for us!

God bless you,
Fr. Charles Trullols
Director, Catholic Information Center

Here is a short reflection I gave on the Solemnity of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, back in March at the very start of the COVID-19 quarantines. Let us turn to St. Joseph’s intercession with our own needs following the example of Jesus and Mary.
