Tuesday of the Third Week of Lent
If we are privileged to have gainful employment, we are very blessed. (Did you thank God today as you left for work?) Creation was not finished billions of years ago; rather it’s still happening as Teilhard de Chardin writes: “We serve to complete it [creation], even by the humblest work of our hands.” Along with prayer and fasting, working to our best is another way to observe Lent. Work isn’t secular; it’s sacred. Work isn’t profane; it’s profound. Work doesn’t have to be a hardship; it can be holiness. Over one-third of our day is spent in work of some kind. Don’t miss the opportunities work provides to grow in holiness.
