The Catholic Organization for Life and Family (COLF) has issued a new message to families on work. Entitled “Work + Love = Holiness,” the brochure examines how work is related to human dignity.

It describes work as an obligation and a responsibility since God has given everyone particular talents to develop.

The main ingredient that gives any work its value, no matter, how menial, or inside or outside the home, is “the love with which it is performed,” COLF says.

The brochure calls Catholics to learn to “pray without ceasing” while they work, to find ways of being thankful, or asking forgiveness or extending blessing or simply asking God for his advice wherever they are.
