St Joseph the Worker


May 1st marks the feast of St. Joseph the Worker. It is fitting that May, Mary's month, begin with a day that honors her spouse. It is almost as though Mary herself placed him there, asking us to honor him as she honors him. I can imagine too, St. Joseph-- in his humility-- accepting his spouse's generosity but asking that he be honored as her servant and as the servant of Christ, St Joseph the laborer.

Pillar of families, Glory of home life, Model of artisans,
St. Joseph, pray for us.
