Prayer for Workers
As we enter the liturgical year of mercy, we are called to offer prayers for our workers. This prayer is especially important as we celebrate the centennial of the Social Doctrine of the Church.
Pope Francis has spoken about the social doctrine of the church and its importance: “The social doctrine of the Church…teaches that every human being has an innate dignity because he or she is made in the image and likeness of God. It also teaches that people are called to solidarity with one another, to work together for the common good and to help one another in their mutual responsibility.”
Pope Francis reminds us that “the dignity of man is not a gift from on high but it is founded on our own nature as creatures made in God’s image.” In other words, we have intrinsic worth because we are created in God’s image. We are called to recognize this worth and work together to build a better world.
Pope Francis continues, “When we work together, when we cooperate with each other, we can create real opportunities for everyone. Cooperation makes us stronger, freer and healthier.” We can all come together to build a more just and peaceful world.
We can offer these prayers for our workers:
