The Dignity of Work

Work is important in God’s plan for adults and their families, so jobs and pay should be fair.

"The Church is clear in its teaching on the dignity of work and the full humanity of the worker. Workers are not commodities to be hired and fired at will. The economy must serve people, not the other way around. We work to live, not live to work. 

Work, the Church teachers is something to be valued, and enjoyed; a means to self-fulfilment providing men and women with the opportunity to share their God given gifts for the good of all people. It is the means by which we continue to co-operate with the work of the Creator to build a world fit for God's children." Caritas in Action.


Loving God,

You gift us a world filled with beauty that reminds us of your grace.

May we always remember to be mindful of how we use and distribute resources, working so no person should ever miss out.
