Feast of Saint Joseph

Today is the Feast of Saint Joseph, the foster-father of Jesus. I wish everyone a blessed feast day. Here is a prayer for today’s feast:

God our Father,
Creator and Ruler of the universe,
in every age you call man
to develop and use his gifts for the good of others.
With St. Joseph as our example and guide,
help us to do the work you have asked
and come to the rewards you have promised.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
from New Saint Joseph Weekday Missal.
