their time to in myriad different ways to improve
the lives of the less fortunate, and to make a
better world for all of us.
take seriously and literally
the admonition to "Feed the Hungry."
to Your Son for those who give willingly and freely
of their time to make
our communities and our institutions stronger
variety of valuable services benefit the most
vulnerable, neglected and needy members of society:
the incarcerated, the poor, the aged,
the homeless, and many others who find themselves
those, Saint Joseph, who prepare, distribute or
serve food to the hungry.
favorably on those who collect, make
or distribute clothing and other household necessities,
and on those who transport clients to doctors,
and those who adopt "unwanted" children.

crowns and estimable places with Your Son in paradise
this I pray in the name of good
Saint Joseph, father of the Living Christ,
