Pope Benedict Warns About Dangers of Excessive Work
As the end of summer and beginning of the school year approach, Pope
Benedict XVI is warning about the dangers of excessive work.
Catholics in Utah agree, but say that advice can often be challenging.
We call it 'the rat race'. People have become work- obsessed.
Many take time each week to find peace, but should the two be separate?
This weekend, Pope Benedict XVI warned against excessive work. He
quoted St. Bernard of Clairvaux, who said this, 800 years ago.
"See where these accursed occupations can lead you, if you continue to
lose yourself in them."
The Pope said: "Numerous occupations often lead to 'hardness of heart.'
They are no more than suffering for the spirit, loss of intelligence
and dispersion of grace."
Once again Pope Benedict continues a message from Pope John Paul, who
said, "People were created for work. Work was not created for people."
"I think that USA should make siesta's mandatory by federal law. Who's
I am. Just don't wake me up... ;)
Kidding. Well, I do think that Americans are overworked and that they
should be working fewer hours, which is part of this humanist proposal
(aka the Banana Revolution)...
