Joseph, Patron and Model of All Workers
O glorious Saint Joseph, faithful guardian of Jesus and Mary,
Your whole life, you worked with your hands
to assure the survival of your family in Nazareth.
Uphold and affirm us today, all of us, who by our presence and work,
Wish to improve our world and make it more
conscious of its dignity.
You are aware of our aspirations, our anguish, and our hopes;
We come to you because we know that in you
We will find someone who understands and watches
Over us with care.
You also experienced trials and tribulations, fatigue and doubt.
Yet, in the midst of material preoccupations of your daily life,
Your deep self was filled with profound peace and great joy,
Through your intimacy with Jesus and Mary.
Help us understand that we are not alone in the midst
Of our activities and daily preoccupations.
Teach us to become aware that you are there, close to us, with Jesus and Mary.
Furthermore, obtain for us, that wherever the energies of our lives may flow,
In our family circles, as in our work quarters,
In our social gatherings, as in our moments of prayer,
We may sow seeds of love, justice and truth.
O Saint Joseph, protector of workers,
Grant that unemployment may disappear from our society.
Inspire our government and business leaders to undertake new initiatives permitting
A greater number of workers, male and female,
To earn an honourable living for themselves and their families.
Give us the necessary courage and creativity to invent new forms of solidarity, and to meet the challenges of the present day.
Saint Joseph of Mount Royal, pray for us.
Saint Joseph the Worker Sterling Silver Medal
Our Sterling silver medals are at least 92.5 percent pure silver. Copper is typically combined to improve the metal’s hardness and durability without compromising the quality and look of the silver.
Sterling Silver medals are marked with a quality stamp to ensure the content of the silver. U.S. Federal law mandates that the quality stamp must include the maker’s mark. You will find either “Sterling Bliss” or “Sterling BLI” on the back of our medals – both acceptable quality marks.
Bliss Manufacturing stands behind its’ jewelry and honors a lifetime guarantee. Our crucifixes are sprayed with a lacquer coating to protect the finish. Should any of our crosses, crucifixes, or chains tarnish, or have defects, we will either repair or replace free of charge. This guarantee takes precedence over our standard return policy.
