Whether you’re a monk or a manager, whether you change tires or change diapers, you can transform your work into a source of strength, holiness, and even joy — and these pages show you how. Written by St. John Paul II’s teacher, Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski, they show you how to change any workplace into a workshop for sanctity — for yourself and for those around you. Regardless of the work you do, these pages will make your attitude better, your work easier, and your life holier. No longer will you have to struggle for holiness despite all the sorrow, stress, and trouble at work!

Cardinal Wyszynski will teach you:

  • Five steps to help you offer all of your daily tasks to God
  • Six virtues work instills in you — when you have the right attitude!
  • Why it’s wrong to think that God made work a punishment for sin
  • Office politics and family stresses — how to defuse them before they do harm
  • The real reason copiers jam and dishwashers quit (knowing why will help you)
  • How to make even the worst job bearable
  • How to hang in there in hard times: perseverance, and how it can be yours
  • Three things that cause discouragement at work — and how to eliminate them
  • God’s plan for the work you do, no matter how humble it may be

Turning the "mundane" into Holiness.
Excellent source of spiritual reading to keep you on your path to Heaven and to stop beating yourself up; to start focusing on your "ordinary" sanctifying duties for your state of life, that you consider "mundane." Our goal is HEAVEN!

A must read for JPII Fans and anyone working. A profound way of seeing things!
Cardinal Wyszynski writes a beautiful, profound, and highly readable meditation on work. He is St. John Paul II’s mentor and spiritual father as the primate of Poland for 33 years. Wyszynski draws in many mega-themes from Scripture and adeptly relates them to work. He explains work as actually loving God and as such it is already prayer. He does not leave it there, but gives ways to pray to make God more present.
