C. S. Lewis, In The Great Divorce, he wrote that in the end there are only two possibilities for each of us. We can either say to God, “Thy Will Be Done”, or else God will ultimately say to us, “Thy will be done” ; “There is a canyon of difference between doing your best to glorify God and doing whatever it takes to glorify yourself. The quest for excellence is a mark of maturity. The quest for power is childish,” Max Lucado.

WORK is good therapy. —–. The Church knows it’s true. We are all called to hold the unemployed and the underemployed in our hearts as we pray for work security.There is a dignity in work. It can get us out of ourselves. It restores hope, gets us dreaming again. It makes us sleep better at night. It gives us a reason to get up. It helps us to pay the bills. It reminds us that we are still alive. It gets us through to another job, a better job. It helps us to pinpoint our strengths. It can even become a prayer. Denise Bossert
