Today is the feast of St Joseph who, among other things, is the Patron of Workers. Today celebrate his feast in your marriage by surprising your spouse and doing one of the jobs around the house you usually leave for your spouse. Change that lightbulb. Clean up the kitchen. Bathe the baby. Give the gift of service to your spouse by doing something you wouldn’t usually consider “your job.” It’s a great way to both serve each other a little better and understand each other a little better too!
