Our friends at Living Faith at Work offer some brief and excellent reflections – and a few self-discovery questions – about the Catholic Vision of Work.
“Our Catholic faith/spirituality at its foundation is a way of seeing -- recognizing God's presence in all of life, including work,” they explain.
“If we view work through the lens of faith, what do we see?” they ask – offering 11 insights about the meaning and significance of our work.
“It makes a profound difference how we view our work: whether we look at our work only as a career or through the eyes of faith as even more --a vocation/calling,” they explain.
There’s also a brief summary of St. John Paul II’s 1981 encyclical, Laborem Exercens (On Human Work), which outlined the spirituality of work.
Living Faith at Work’s brief presentation is ideal for an individual or small group to probe deeper into a perspective that helps people see their work as both a career and a vocation. Check it out here.
