  • St. Joseph the Worker
    the Worker Joseph the husband of Mary and the foster father of Jesus spent a lifetime laboring as a carpenter His primary motivation for working wasn t a quest for riches or status but a desire to serve God and to care for his family in a loving way Joseph never worked any miracles he never made any important speeches he wasn t a public figure but was known only as a humble carpenter Matthew 13 55 Joseph labored in obscurity but was nonetheless given an important part in God s plan Lessons 1 Work is not intended to be an end in itself or a path to earthly riches rather it s meant to glorify God and to help us prepare for eternity As Jesus said Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth where moth and decay destroy and thieves break in and steal But store up treasures in Heaven where neither moth nor decay destroys nor thieves break in and steal For where your treasure is there also will your heart be Matthew 6 20 21 2 Honest and humble labor is a source of true human dignity Though St Joseph worked as a simple carpenter he achieved great holiness and his example influenced Jesus Who though the eternal Son of God and the Source of all creation Himself learned from Joseph and for a time followed in his footsteps as a carpenter Mark 6 3 Other Saints We Remember Today St Peregrine Laziosi 1345 Religious Patron of cancer sufferers image Renata Sedmakova Shutterstock com Connect CE Podcast Art as Theology A Conversation with Timothy P Schmalz 2 weeks ago Moving From Grief to Grace with Jeannie Ewing 4 weeks ago Holy Week Among the Byzantine Catholics with Thomas Moses 1 month ago See previous Podcasts

  • Meeting with citizens and with the Catholic community. A remembering of the victims of migration
    statistic are first of all persons who have faces names and individual stories Europe is the homeland of human rights and whoever sets foot on European soil ought to sense this and thus become more aware of the duty to respect and defend those rights Unfortunately some including many infants could not even make it to these shores they died at sea victims of unsafe and inhumane means of transport prey to unscrupulous thugs You the residents of Lesvos show that in these lands the cradle of civilization the heart of humanity continues to beat a humanity that before all else recognizes others as brothers and sisters a humanity that wants to build bridges and recoils from the idea of putting up walls to make us feel safer In reality barriers create divisions instead of promoting the true progress of peoples and divisions sooner or later lead to confrontations To be truly united with those forced to flee their homelands we need to eliminate the causes of this dramatic situation it is not enough to limit ourselves to responding to emergencies as they arise Instead we need to encourage political efforts that are broader in scope and multilateral It is necessary above all to build peace where war has brought destruction and death and to stop this scourge from spreading To do this resolute efforts must be made to counter the arms trade and arms trafficking and the often hidden machinations associated with them those who carry out acts of hatred and violence must be denied all means of support Cooperation among nations international organizations and humanitarian agencies must be tirelessly promoted and those on the frontlines must be assisted not kept at a distance In this regard I reiterate my hope that the First World Humanitarian Summit being held in Istanbul next month will prove productive All of this can be achieved only if we work together solutions to the complex issue of refugees which are worthy of humanity can and must be sought In this regard the contribution of Churches and religious communities is indispensable My presence here along with that of Patriarch Bartholomew and Archbishop Ieronymos is a sign of our willingness to continue to cooperate so that the challenges we face today will not lead to conflict but rather to the growth of the civilization of love Dear brothers and sisters God is neither indifferent to nor distant from the tragedies that wound humanity He is our Father who helps us to work for good and to reject evil Not only does he come to our aid but in Jesus he has shown us the way of peace Before the evil of this world he made himself our servant and by his service of love he saved the world This is the true power that brings about peace Only those who serve with love build peace Service makes us go beyond ourselves and care for others It does not stand by while people and things are
