Work should not take up so much of our day that it occupies the time that should be dedicated to God, to the family, to our friends… If this should happen it would be a clear sign that we are not sanctifying ourselves through our work, but rather we are simply seeking self-satisfaction in it.  It would be another form of corruption of that divine gift.  This deformation is perhaps more dangerous in our day because of the false reasons for which many people work.  We, ordinary simple Christians in the middle of the world, should never forget that we must find Christ each day in and through our occupation, whatever it may be. –Francis Fernandez
