May 1st: Feast of St. Joseph the Worker

Today is one of many Church feast days dedicated to St. Joseph. It celebrates St. Joseph the Worker, the carpenter and humble artisan to whom God entrusted his Son and Our Lady.

On another feast day of St. Joseph, March 19, 1997, John Paul II spoke the following words on the subject of work:

The Church reminds all who attempt to assert the predominance of technology, thereby reducing man to a "product" or a means of production, that "man is the subject of work," since in the divine plan "work is 'for man'" and not man 'for work.'"

Have a wonderful Tuesday, and don't get too frazzled at work!
