Work is a way of finding oneself, a place of growth and fulfilment. Saint Joseph, the patron of workers, teaches us how we can find holiness in our professional lives. Unfortunately, due to unemployment, job insecurity, and psychological and economical stress, work became a source of suffering for many of us rather than an opportunity to grow and thrive. Thanks to prayer, we can ask for protection and encouragement at work. Let’s pray for the unemployed, for a new job and for everyone to be able to find fulfilment in their work!
Times of unemployment can be hard and unsettling. Unfortunately, with the instability of the job market, they become more and more frequent. However, these periods can become a place of a new beginning. Therefore, let’s entrust our job search to God with hope and confidence.
With the help of the Holy Spirit, online novenas and retreats can help you take time for reflection on your life’’ mission. So let’s ask God for guidance and a job that will allow us to offer the talents He provided us with to others!
Joseph was a carpenter. He used his work to serve the community, his family, including his son, Jesus. The nourishing father of Jesus Christ hence became the patron of workers. When entrusting our job search or issues at work to his powerful intercession, we can be sure he will enlighten us.
Hozana offers various novenas to Saint Joseph, the protector of workers. You can ask him for the grace of good work for you or your keens.
We all want to succeed at work. But what does professional success mean to us Christians? A fulfilling professional career enables us to offer and share our talents, to shine. According to Paul’s to the Colossians, we should put our hearts to serving others and God through our work, whatever it is. “ Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving” (Colossians 3:23-24). Let’s pray to live our work as a time of communion!
