“The human person is the measure of the dignity of work” — Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church
Reflection: The Church teaches that work has its final goal in the human person. In other words, people are not to be considered as just cogs in a wheel of productivity. Work exists for people, not the other way around. It is an expression of the person and builds up his or her dignity. This is a key conviction in a Culture of Life.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Amen.
