This week's novena will cross from February, the Month of the Holy Family, into March, the Month of Saint Joseph, and thus it is appropriate that we turn this week to Saint Joseph. As we struggle through the first few weeks of Lent, we may find ourselves tempted to slack off in our Lenten discipline. Saint Joseph, the patron saint of workers, is our indispensable ally.
This Prayer for Fidelity to Work reminds us that all of our labor is, in fact, part of our struggle on the road to heaven.
Saint Joseph, patron saint of workers, pray for us!
