St. Joseph the Worker

Happy Feast of St. Joseph the Worker! I'll be offering up my day for all of you job searching!

"Work is a good thing for one's humanity—because through work one not only transforms nature, adapting it to his or her own needs, but also achieves fulfillment
as a human being and indeed, in a sense, becomes “more a human being.”
--Pope John Paul the Great

"Let us prepare to suffer and to work. We will rest after death."
--St. Maximillian Kolbe

(Icon by Daniel Nichols, of Eighth Day Icons.)

  1. Youuuu said till Monday! But that's okay.

    Also, that iconographer has officially gotten me in trouble. He's rather got an acid tongue! And mine is more basic, or just a wee bit tart. That's presuming it's the same fellow. If not, he's gotten two fellows who share his phonetic name in trouble. Pish!
