Dear St. 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 my Son in his anxiety over his present inability to support his family like he wishes.
Please help him to find gainful employment very soon, so that this heavy burden of concern will be lifted from his heart and that he is soonable to provide for those whom God has entrusted to his care. Help his family gaurd against bitterness and discouragement, so that they may emerge from this trial spiritually enriched and with greater blessings from God. Amen
