This will overlap with the Year of the Family beginning 19 Mar 2021 and ending 26 Jun 2022.
Both are very interesting initiatives, especially when viewed in the light of devotion to the Chaste Heart of St Joseph and the series of apparitions in Brazil during the 1990s and approved in 2010:
All three seem to be part of heaven's fight back plan for our troubled world.
One of the gifts of the Year of St Joseph is particular encouragement to pray for employment needs, viz:
"Everyone who entrusts their daily activity to the protection of St. Joseph, and every faithful who invokes the intercession of St. Joseph so that those seeking work can find dignifying work can also obtain the plenary indulgence."
The latter part is what this following prayer is all about, which you might like to use on a daily basis during this Year of St Joseph:
Daily Prayer to St Joseph for Employment
Dear St Joseph, chaste husband and foster father,
you were yourself once faced with the responsibility
of providing the necessities of life for Jesus and Mary.
Look down with fatherly compassion upon me,
and my loved ones,
and upon all who suffer anxieties over their present inability to support their families
and upon all who long to use their God-given gifts and talents
to the utmost but cannot currently find a way to do so.
Please help us all find gainful employment very soon,
so that these heavy burdens of concern
and feeling useless will be lifted from our hearts,
and that we will soon be able to provide for those whom God has entrusted to our care.
Help us to guard against bitterness and discouragement,
and help us to grow in peace of heart and confident expectation
of God’s perfect answers to our needs,
so that we may emerge from this time of trial spiritually enriched
and with even greater blessings from God.
Thank you for your intercession for us
and for the amazing answers that are coming.
St Joseph, we entrust ourselves and our families to you. Amen.
Our Father…, Hail Mary…, Glory Be…
St Joseph, pray for us.
And if you would prefer an easy to print version:
Wouldn't it be wonderful if during this Year of St Joseph if unemployment, under-employment and the misfortunes of being stuck in the wrong job were completely eradicated?
Prayer can make that happen, but it will take you and me and many others united in daily prayer to obtain through St Joseph's intercession before the throne of Almighty God a worldwide blessing of such magnitude.
