Dear friends, as we get ready to celebrate Labor Day I began wondering what the history of this National Holiday was. In 1885 a movement began to create a day that is dedicated to the social and economic achievement of American workers. It pays tribute to the contribution workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well being of our country. This is all worth celebrating but I would like to take a moment to high light what I believe to be important and that is that every, and I mean every, task that we perform has value and worth not just because of the economic benefit it creates, but because it has the ability to make the world a better place for others and ourselves. It has the ability to help others to know and accept the dignity that is within them. Each task that we do, big or small, can help others know God’s and our love for them. This means that no task is meaningless. This is worth celebrating.
God’s continued Blessing! Fr. Yvon
