After celebrating evening Mass at Aylesford on the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker, Bishop Cowderoy of Southwark went in pro. cession with the clergy and people to bless the Friary workshops. After blessing the ceramic plaque of dedication the Bishop blesed the workshops one day and then spoke of SI. Joseph as the true patron of all labour. " We can well understand," he said, " why the Vicar of Christ has picked out this just man to he an example to workers everywhere.
" We know Ihat the Church of God has had sometimes to champion the poor and afflicted, the slaves of cruel masters, but times have changed and 1 think the time will come when the Church will have to defend those of other classes whose circumstances have changed and to remind the classes who laboured and who have the advantage of collective bargaining and upon whose work the nation depends so much that they must be Just. that they must have charity and peace of heart.
"There can be on the workers' part great injustice and waste of time. And so we turn to St. Joseph, the just man who would never have done a botched job who would never have wasted time or done an unjust thing."
