Through Work, Man Enters the Enterprise of Salvation

Through work, man can fulfill himself a sa Christian and, in a certain sense, be more Christian. This becomes possible when man, giving the meaning to work that it has in the eyes of God, allows himself to be guided by faith, hope, and charity. He then draws closer to God, enters the enterprise of salvation, and his work becomes an exercise of faith and a stimulus to elevation and prayer.
