The value of our work is determined by the love with which it is performed.
That's a key in Catholic Organization for Life and Family's 2010 Message to Families. The Message, with the theme of "Work + love = holiness", is a reflection on the dignity of work.
It describes human work as a part of God's plan. As a media release from COLF explains:
It is an occasion for us to become co-creators and co-redeemers. Jesus calls us in our daily work to ask us to become his partners, to work for Him and with Him. He wants to bring divine meaning to all the hours that we devote every day to work and to our families, in joy as well as in tears.
