Praise God with work - the memory of St. Joseph the craftsman

Gathered in the Licheń basilica, they prayed on May 1, during the Holy Mass. at. 12, especially for people working and looking for a job and those at risk of losing their jobs due to the pandemic.

If work becomes an idol, we will accumulate a lot, but we will lose our relationship with God, the eternal life and life of our loved ones. It is worth considering work as part of our life that serves the good of our family, but not appropriating everything ... We are connected with God not only when we come to the temple or pray, but also when we work. Work can glorify God, serve family and other people.

In the homily of Fr. Janusz Kumala, MIC, the custodian of the Lichen sanctuary, who presided over the Eucharist, recalled the figure of St. Józefa: he was a carpenter, craftsman, builder. He worked in wood and stone and taught Jesus his trade. - What does this mean in the context of our lives? - the curator of the sanctuary prompted reflection. - Work is an important area of our life, so we should discover the meaning of our work as part of God's plan. Work is cooperation with God the Creator, it is to serve our good - emphasized Fr. Kumala. He explained that the purpose of the work is not only to pay, although the salary should be decent, but to help build a relationship with God.
