Labor Day

This year Pope Francis canonized Saint John XX111 and Saint John Paul 11. Both made immense contributions to the social teaching of the Church on the dignity of labor and its importance to human flourishing. St. John Paul II called work “probably the essential key to the whole social question” (Laborem Exercen, No. 3) and St. John XXIII stressed workers are “entitled to a wage that is determined in accordance with the precepts of justice” (Pacem in Terris, No. 20)
