On Saturday 1 May 2021, we celebrated the second Feast Day for St Joseph, which focuses on his inspiring qualities as a worker. This is especially important this year, as Pope Francis has proclaimed this year ‘The Year of Joseph’.
This special prayer helps children to understand what ‘work’ is and why it is important, including Pope Francis’s explanation that when we work, whether for money or not, we are working with God Himself and ‘in some way become creators of the world around us’!*
*We have used some simplified teaching from Pope Francis’ Apostolic Letter on 8th December 2020 called ‘Patris Corde’, which means ‘with a father’s heart’, found here.
