The Pope Video 10-2017 – Rights of workers and the unemployed – October 2017
This month, Pope Francis asks us to pray that the rights of workers and the unemployed will be respected. Work is one of the fundamental human rights. Let us make an effort so that everyone has access to employment in dignified conditions.
“We should always remember the dignity and rights of those who work, condemn situations in which that dignity and those rights are violated, and help to ensure authentic progress by man and society. Let us pray that all workers may receive respect and protection of their rights, and that the unemployed may receive the opportunity to contribute to the common good.”
Food For Thought:
“Joy is one of the best safeguards against temptation. The devil is a carrier of dust and dirt and he uses every opportunity to throw what he has at us. But a joyful heart protects us from this dirt. That is because Jesus is there in our joy. Jesus takes full possession of our soul when we surrender to him joyfully. St. Francis de Sales said, ‘A sad saint is a bad saint’. St. Teresa of Avila worried about her sisters only when she saw them lose their joy. Joy is a source of power for us.”— St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Bishop Barron on “Ingrid Goes West” (Spoilers)
Matt Spicer’s dark comedy “Ingrid Goes West” is a telling and penetrating critique of the iPhone culture that has swallowed up so many young people today, and it artfully explores the shadow side of living in virtual reality.
