Labor Day, Monday of the 23rd Week in Ordinary Time

May your Labor Day be blessed in every way, as we honor and recognize the American labor movement, you, and the contributions of all people who use their talents to help others. Let us pray. O God, who through human labor never cease to perfect and govern the vast work of creation, listen to the supplications of Your people, and grant that all men and women may find work that benefits their dignity, joins them more closely to one another, and enables them to serve their neighbor. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit. One God, forever and ever. Amen.
