Today is the 1st May and May is the month of Mary. Mary is our Mother who guides & comforts us. When we pray the Hail Mary, we remember that Mary prays with us & for us. Why not pray a Hail Mary or a decade of the rosary to begin the month of May?

Today We Celebrate St. Joseph the Worker
Do you find yourself in need of prayer looking for work these days? We offer this prayer to St. Joseph for Employment printed below in the hope it might provide some relief and comfort to those of you caught in this position.
Prayer to St. Joseph for Employment
Dear Saint Joseph,
You were yourself once faced with the responsibility of providing the necessities of life for Jesus and Mary.
Look down with fatherly compassion upon me in my anxiety with my present inability to support my family.
Please help me find gainful employment very soon, so that this great burden of concern will be lifted from my heart and that I am soon able to provide for those whom God has entrusted to my care.
Help me guard against discouragement, so that I may emerge from this trial spiritually enriched and with even greater blessings from God. Amen.
