Homily from the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time.
Work is the response to a call. Not to self-expression, but to self-donation.
If work is about me, then it will always involve fruitless and pointless toil. But if work is about responding to a call outside or myself…if it is about responding to a need outside of myself…then work is free to simply “be work”. And we can cease to look to work for validation, identity, and meaning.Mass Readings from January 24, 2016:
