This is Labor Day Weekend. We have the chance to reflect on the importance of
work in our lives and how it is that we provide for our family, friends and the wider community.
We believe that all we have is a gift from God. As our Creator, God has provided us with this wonderful world in which to live. But beyond this, we believe that we can also be “co-creators” with God whenever we work to make our world and society a better place. No matter what our job or profession might be, we continue the work of creation by seeing that what we do is a part of God’s divine plan. What a powerful insight this is!
So, whether we are working full time, part time or retired, let’s remember that we are called to “Courageously Live the Gospel”, and that we are all called to work in the “Vineyard of the Lord” and make the world around us a better place for all in the name of Jesus Christ!
And let us continue to pray for one another.
