I want to tell about a favor from St Josemaria
At the end of May I gave up my job to look for one where I could specialize as a psychologist and at the same time earn my living. The first days of June I started looking, and sending my resume to very many places. I got no results, and it was getting towards the end of the month.
The Family: Work and Celebration
The Seventh World Meeting of Families will take place from May 30 to June 3 in Milan, Italy. The theme for the meeting is "The Family: Work and Celebration". This is because the question of how to achieve a work-life balance is one that affects families throughout the world.
"Finishing properly the tasks committed to us”
Sanctity is made up of heroic acts. Therefore, in our work we are asked for the heroism of finishing properly the tasks committed to us, day after day, even though they are the same tasks. If we don't, then we do not want to be saints. (Furrow, 529)
“Your work too must become a personal prayer”
Before you start working, place a crucifix on your desk or beside the tools you work with. From time to time glance at it... When tiredness creeps in, your eyes will go towards Jesus, and you will find new strength to continue with your task. For that crucifix is more than a picture of someone you love —parents, children, wife, sweetheart... He is everything: your Father, your Brother, your Friend, your God, the very Love of your loves. (The Way of the Cross, Eleventh Station, 5)
“Sanctifying one's work is no fantastic dream”
Sanctifying one's work is no fantastic dream, but the mission of every Christian - yours and mine. That is what that lathe-worker had discovered, when he said: "I am overwhelmed with happiness when I think how true it is that while I am working at the lathe and singing - singing all the time, on the outside and on the inside - I can become a saint. How good God is!" (Furrow, 517)
