Work + love = holiness!

October 11, 2010
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.Fullscreen capture 1072010 31315 PM
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.

You can also watch the Perspectives Weekly Edition episode for October 1st, where we asked: "Do Canadians work too much?"  University of Navarra's Business School Academic Director Mireia Las Heras and Work and Family Foundation of Canada founder Salvador Rego discuss integrating work and family.  It's also interesting to note that Salvador mentioned the balance of work and family, his appearance on Perspectives, and a recent poll last week on the Foundation's website.  You can read about that here.
