We've seen unprecedented rises in the level of unemployment over recent weeks as many segments of the economy have ground to a halt. "It looks bad on a graph, but it's really a terrible experience for the people who are now out of work - those who may be furloughed, may be fired, without a clear sense of a path into the future for their own security and for their families," says Archbishop Lucas.
The feast of Saint Joseph the Worker gives those of us who do have work the chance to appreciate it more fully, and should help us to notice and pray specifically for those who are suffering the loss of work at this time. Joseph is also a refuge and model for those who are facing the loss of gainful employment.
