Stressed or Having Difficulty at Work? Turn to These 6 Saints for Help

Work can be a source of stress, but also a form of sanctification if we dedicate our difficulties to God.

If your work situation is a cause for concern, you can ask these saints for help. They will be your ideal intercessors in this fight!

1) Saint Joseph the Worker

Saint Joseph, the patron saint of workers, is the foster father of Jesus and a diligent carpenter. He is a great saint to turn to if you are looking for a job, want success in your current job, or face difficulties.

3) Saint Gianna Beretta Molla

Finding the balance between work ambitions and family responsibilities can overwhelm us. Gianna is the perfect saint to turn to. She was a doctor, wife, and mother and is the best possible example of having a harmonious and satisfying relationship between career and family life.

4) Saint Josemaría Escrivá

5) Saint Teresa of Calcutta

Saint Teresa of Calcutta can help us to be humble, even in the workplace.

“We are at Jesus’ disposal. If He wants us to be sick in bed, if He wants us to proclaim His works in the streets, if He wants us to clean the bathrooms all day, that’s fine, everything is fine. We must say ‘I belong to you.'”Saint Teresa of Calcutta / Wikimedia Commons, Public Domain

6) Saint Therese of Lisieux

Despite her short life, this Carmelite nun always managed to overcome difficulties. Her “Little Way” is not a shortcut to avoid asceticism. She explains the value of suffering and teaches us to find joy in the little things surrounding us, even when our profession is difficult!
