I recognized that there is nothing better than to rejoice and to do well during life. Moreover, that all can eat and drink and enjoy the good of all their toil – this is a gift of God. Ecclesiastes 3:12-13
I hope you are enjoying a peaceful and relaxing Labor Day. As we spend this well-deserved day of rest with friends and family, it is important to remember the many blessings God bestows on those who dedicate their work and labor to His grace and glory.
We at Oblate Missions are most thankful for you – our gracious and generous Mazenodian-Oblate Family. Your continued support throughout ongoing challenges brings the peace and love of Jesus to countless families around the world and right here in the United States as well.
Keep it close to you so it may provide motivation or a quiet meditation in the middle of a busy work day.
A Prayer for Labor Day
Whatever you do, do from the heart,
as for the Lord and not for others,
knowing that you will receive from the Lord the due payment of the inheritance;
be servants of the Lord Christ.
Today we thank You for our freedom to work and to glorify Your name
through the many graces and talents You have bestowed.
We ask You continue to watch over us
and all those working to further your mission here on earth.
Grant us the motivation and resilience we need every day
to continue giving You thanks through our hard work.
We ask this in Your name, Amen.
In Jesus Christ and Mary Immaculate,
Father David P. Uribe, OMI
Oblate Chaplain Director
