Prayer to St Joseph by Pope St. Pius X

O Glorious St Joseph,
model of all who are devoted to labor,
obtain for me the grace to work
in the spirit of penance
in expiation of my many sins;
to work conscientiously by placing
love of duty above my inclinations;
to gratefully and joyously deem it an honor
to employ and to develop by labor
the gifts I have received from God,
to work methodically, peacefully,
and in moderation and patience,
without ever shrinking from it
through weariness or difficulty;
to work above all, with purity of intention
and unselfishness, having unceasingly
before my eyes death and the account
I have to render of time lost,
talents unused, good not done,
and vain complacency in success,
so baneful to the work of God.

All for Jesus,
all for Mary,
all to imitate thee,
O Patriarch St Joseph!

This shall be my motto
for life and eternity.
