The Lord Is My Chef Daily Recipe for the Soul by Fr. Nicanor F. Lalog II Monday, Feast of St. Joseph the Worker, 01 May 2023 Genesis 1:26-2:3 ><]]]]'> + <'[[[[>< Matthew 13:54-58
Glory and praise to you, God our loving Father in giving us a share in your work in making this world a better place; despite our sinfulness and turning away from you in the time of Adam and Eve, you still call us to participate in your work of holiness by calling St. Joseph to marry the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of your Son and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Despite the difficult situation and work ahead of him, St. Joseph obeyed you, working in silence, doing your will, taking care of Jesus and Mary that in his work, people recognized Jesus!
Jesus came to his native place and taught the people in their synagogue. They were astonished and said, “Where did this man get such wisdom and mighty deeds? Is he not the carpenter’s son?”
Like St. Joseph, may we not find only the labor and amount of work to be done in our tasks and jobs but most of all, that we may find you in Jesus Christ, the very meaning of our life and work. Amen.
