Episode 62: Does God Want You to be Successful

Today Sam and John discuss the dignity of work and how to balance the desire for career advancement with your faith. We also give great advice on how to get ahead in your career and discern changing your job. Pride, power, and pleasure are the ideals held by society with work, but it is by pursuing these ideals that we instead find frustration, anxiety, and unhappiness.

RERUM NOVARUM – “Rights and Duties of Capital and Labor” – Pope Leo XIII –

LABOREM EXERCENS – “Through work man must earn his daily bread” – Pope St. John Paul II – https://www.vatican.va/content/john-paul-ii/en/encyclicals/documents/hf_jp-ii_enc_14091981_laborem-exercens.html

Catechism:

“If any one will not work, let him not eat.” Work honors the Creator’s gifts and the talents received from him. (CCC 2427).

In work, the person exercises and fulfills in part the potential inscribed in his nature. (CCC 2428)
