Precursors of the Spirit of Pope Francis: A Philosophy of Work

Precursors of the Spirit of Pope Francis: A Philosophy of Work:  Tom McDonough's latest blog post:“The root of our evil is the lack of a philosophy of work.”



"Peter Maurin and St. John Paul II has left us a philosophy of work within the framework of his Christian Anthropology: the human person is made in the image of the Trinitarian God. An important element of this anthropology is WORK, particularly the “subjective dimension” of work. “Through work the worker becomes more a human being."



McDonough goes onto mention St. Josemaria Escriva's insights:"Ordinary, hum-drum work becomes redemptive, participates in the redemptive mission of Jesus." I expand upon the same themes here.  McDonough weaves together St.s Josemaria & John Paul II with Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin.  Good stuff to read--and then act upon!
