“Mary, spouse of St. Joseph, help me in the task of keeping house, that it may always be a work of love and that I may provide a home for those I love where they find comfort, understanding and love.
Teach me to find time in my daily work to think of God, to pray to Him and to give Him thanks. Help me to make work itself a prayer to God’s glory. Help me to make my home and my heart another home for Your Son, Jesus. Teach me to be as loving, kind, dignified and diligent as You were in Your home at Nazareth. Mary, mother of Jesus, pray for me. Amen.”
