May 1, 2022 – A day to continually uplift the workers and to remember the human and spiritual significance of labor

May 1, 2022 – Labor Day and Feast of St. Joseph the Worker

Today, May 1, 2022, and every May 1 of each year, we celebrate Labor Day as well as the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker.

Today, I meditate on the value of HARD WORK and LABOR as taught by the Bible, St. Joseph and other wise people.

If you are poor, work. If you are burdened with seemingly unfair responsibilities, work. If you are happy, work. Idleness gives room for doubts and fears. If disappointments come, keep right on working. If sorrow overwhelms you and loved ones seem not true, work. If health is threatened, work. When faith falters and reason fails, just work. When dreams are shattered and hope seems dead, work. Work as if your life were in peril. It really is. No matter what ails you, work. Work faithfully-work with faith. Work is the greatest remedy available for both mental and physical afflictions.
