Saint Joseph the Worker

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph - Holy Family Shrine at Sacred Heart Church
We begin the month of May, Our Lady's month, today with the Feast of Saint Joseph the Worker.
‘Men and women who are providing for themselves and their families, and are thus performing an appropriate service in society, can rightly regard themselves as furthering the creator’s work by their labour, as being concerned for the wellbeing of their fellows and as making a personal contribution to the achievement of the divine plan in history.’
- Vatican Council II, Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the World of Today, Gaudium et spes 34
