Today's Reflection:

We know that work is about more than just a way to put food on the table. It is a way we find and see our own dignity. We gain a sense of satisfaction when we do a job well. And having a job can provide a sense of worth for anyone. The pandemic really turned the world upside down for work.

Suddenly people were working from home. For others, it was worse. They lost their jobs. How would they pay their rent? How would they afford food? When would they be able to get another job? The sheer stress from these circumstances, as well as potentially caring for loved ones (or themselves) who were sick and even died, became simply too much for some. This rosary marathon is a grace-filled way to pray for a return to normalcy. We long for those days when we could go about life, even with its difficulties, in a way where we might again find the balance between work and social activities. As we continue this Rosary Marathon, let us pray for all workers and entrepreneurs.

Today's Intention: For all workers and entrepreneurs.
