Dignity of Work

Reflect

Sometimes it is difficult to see the value in our labor. We take much for granted–including our work.  Caught up in routine we forget to take satisfaction in what we do, while others struggle to find gainful employment. Let us pray to cherish our hard work.


Pray

Jesus,
y
ou came to us
as a carpenter’s son.

You called fisherman
to be your closest disciples.

Your Church was built
with the hands of laborers.

You know the value of labor.
Give me today
a spirit of gratitude
for the fruits of my work.
Amen.


Act

Whether you are employed, own a business, or are seeking employment, all of us have work to do. Take a moment to reflect on something you do that you may take pride in, and thank God for it.
