May 1 – Feast of St. Joseph the Worker

Today is the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker.

Thoughts about the feast day by Dr. Tom Neal, Academic Dean and Professor of Spiritual Theology at Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans:

“Work is not merely a means of achieving wealth and capital, but rather is good in itself when carried out in concert with the moral law in service to the authentic and common good of humanity. . .”

“Work is a school of virtue that allows us to perfect our gifts to the glory of God and for the good of our neighbor.”

What is most important in my work is not what I produce and achieve, but who I become as I work and toil and make a living by the sweat of my brow.”
