We need to understand that in Catholic spirituality work has a very important place. Here are 3 things that work is meant to do in our lives. The spirituality of work comes to us from scripture, the Benedictine's, and Opus Dei.
- Work heals us.
- It is when we are doing the duty of the moment that we meet Christ. If we want to be close to Jesus we will be closest to Jesus when we are doing the work he has assigned to us.
- It is when we work that we are most likely to feel the presence of God. It is when we are embracing our God given tasks that we are most likely to experience the joy of the Lord, the love of God, and the fire of God's presence in our hearts.
