Yesterday at Envoy Encore I read about Jack Van Impe being called the “walking bible” since he has memorized the New Testament. I also can perform an amazing feat of memory. I have memorized everything that St. Joseph said in the bible word for word. Not only that but I can repeat his words in any biblical translation. I can recite his words with perfect inflection in Aramaic, Greek, Latin, French and even Navajo. Hard to believe but it is all true and now I am working toward memorizing all of Psalm 117 and then on to the whole Book of Jude. Ambitious isn’t it?
St. Joseph please pray for those who are currently seeking employment and that they find work that suits them and provides for their family.
Here is a prayer to St. Joseph by Pope Pius X:
O Glorius St. Joseph, model of all who are devoted to labor, obtain for me the grace to work in the spirit of penance in expiation of my many sins; to work conscientiously by placing love of duty above my inclinations; to gratefully and joyously deem it an honor to employ and to develop by labor the gifts I have received from God, to work methodically, peacefully, and in moderation and patience, without ever shrinking from it through weariness or difficulty to work; above all, with purity of intention and unselfishness, having unceasingly before my eyes death and the account I have to render time lost, talents unused, good not done, and vain complacency in success, so baneful to the work of God. All for Jesus, all for Mary, all to imitate thee, O Patriarch St. Joseph! This shall be my motto for life and eternity.
