June 7 St. Joseph apparition in France -prayer - Prayer For those in Need of Employment
From Mary Jane D.
On June 7, 1660, at about one o’clock in the afternoon, a young shepherd from Cotignac, 22 year-old Gaspard Ricard, was watching his flock of sheep on the eastern slopes of Mount Bessillon. The heat was oppressive and Gaspard was thirsty. Suddenly, he saw “a man at his side” who pointed to a rock, saying: “I am Joseph; lift this rock and you can drink.” Gaspard had his doubts because the rock looked heavy. The apparition repeated his instructions. The shepherd obeyed, moving the rock without difficulty, and found a source.

Short Novena prayer (translated from French)
Hail Joseph, you know that divine grace
has filled the Savior
who rested in your arms
and grew up under your eyes.
You are blessed among all people
and Jesus, the Divine Child

Saint Joseph, foster father to the Son of God,
pray for us in our family concerns,
health and work,
until our last days and
deign to help us in the hour of our death. AMEN
