Quote/s of the Day – 1 May – Wednesday of the Second week of Easter, the first day of Mary’s Month and the Memorial of St Joseph the Worker, Gospel: John 3:16–21

“Sanctity, for the vast majority of people,
implies sanctifying their work,
sanctifying themselves in it
and sanctifying others through it.”sanctity for the vast majority - st joseph worker - st josemaria escriva 1 may 2019.jpg

“It is no good offering to God,
something that is less perfect
than our poor human limitations permit.
The work that we offer, must be without blemish
and it must be done as carefully as possible,
even in its smallest details,
for God will not accept shoddy workmanship.
‘Thou shalt not offer anything that is faulty,’
Holy Scripture warns us,
‘because it would not be worthy of him.’
For that reason, the work of each one of us,
the activities that take up our time and energy,
must be an offering worthy of our Creator.
It must be operatio Dei, a work of God,
that is done for God –
in short, a task that is complete and faultless.”

St Josemaria Escrivá (1902-1975)it is no good offering to god - on work - st josemaria escriva 1 may 2019.jpg

“A spirituality must be lived that will help believers
to sanctify themselves through their work,
imitating St Joseph, who everyday,
had to provide for the needs of the Holy Family
with his hands and who because of this,
the Church indicates as patron of workers.”

Pope Benedict XVIa spirituality must be lived - pope benedict 1 may 2019.jpg

“Work done grudgingly, is servitude.

Work done willingly, is service.

Work done lovingly, is a Sacrament!”
