"To work is proper to the human person. It expresses our dignity of being created in the image of God. Therefore, it is said that work is sacred." (Pope Francis)
September is when a season changes from summer to autumn, vacations are over, schools are in session and people return to their normal work routine. Labor Day weekend is usually celebrated as the official last splash of summer! So it is fitting to reflect on the meaning and value of work as Pope Francis reminds us.
St. Clare admonishes us to work in such a way as "to not extinguish the spirit of prayer. " In other words, can we find God in whatever we are doing? God is there, present and working through us.
We pray you may be rewarded for your goodness to us and to so many others. May you experience how blessed and loved you are!
Sr. Carolyn Forgette, OSC
And all your grateful Poor Clare Sisters
