Pastor's Message:
Bishops Remind Us of the Dignity and Value of Human Labor

Did you know that the Catholic Church has a lot to say about the dignity and value of human labor, labor policy in our nation, and the status of labor in the U.S.?

In a nutshell, Catholic social teaching is pro-work, pro-family, and pro-child. For example, our bishops favor raising the minimum wage; the reform of current tax laws that penalize being married; the reform of health care to include all citizens; the enactment of generous family and medical leave laws; and other legislative changes that serve working families. The sign of a healthy economy is not how the rich are doing, but how the poor are doing. The poor are first in the estimation of Jesus.

The Catholic bishops to the U.S. have long held that the most effective way to build a just economy is to make decent work at decent wages available for all those capable of working. When the economy fails to generate sufficient jobs, there is a moral obligation to protect the life and dignity of unemployed and underemployed workers and their families.

Read the bishops’ annual Labor Day message. The bishops' website www.usccb.org is on my favorites bar, because there is so much great information there, along with official Catholic statements on just about everything.

 

Daily Scripture

As Catholics, we are encouraged to read Scripture, especially focusing on the readings included in our liturgies. An easy way to find these and other Scripture texts is to link to the site for the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops:
