A time for peace....

Labor Day marks the end of summer vacation for many. Our population needs work; and work that will support families and allow savings for the future. American used to treasure these things. Too much greed seeks to make servants of workers when business is to serve the common good, and workers are the lifeblood of any business. Pray for those who work:

"God our Creator, we are the work of your hands. Guide us in our work, that we may do it, not for self alone, but for the common good. Make us alert to injustice, ready to stand in solidarity, that there may be dignity for all in labor and in labor's reward. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen" .....USCCB - Catholic Household Blessings and Prayers.
