Reflection 168 Resolution Previous reflections
Based on the
Vatican 2 document
"Gaudium et Spes" (Church in the world) 67
Two main ideas from this article:
- everyone has a right to a decent job, and a
- work can be a prayer, offered to the Father with Jesus who was a carpenter
May workers remember to say a little prayer like
this at the start of each day:
Heavenly Father, I remember Jesus working as a carpenter,
and I offer my work with Jesus as a prayer for the world
People who pray before/during
are more peaceful....and do a better job...
and are drawing a second salary, a heavenly salary, to help other people!
