A book about professional work

Giorgio Faro, Il lavoro nell’insegnamento del Beato Josemaria Escriva [Work in the teaching of Blessed Josemaria Escriva], Agrilavoro Edizioni, Rome, 2000, 174 pages. The author is Professor of Special Ethics at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome. He looks at the treatment of work in the teachings of Opus Dei’s founder, in light of the thirty years Christ spent living in Nazareth. Professor Faro shows the richness and depth of the teachings of Blessed Josemaria, a precursor of the doctrine of the Second Vatican Council on many aspects of the vocation and mission of the laity.

The book consists of five chapters. In the first chapter, he briefly considers an anthropology of work; then he reviews conceptions about work prevalent in the modern world (chapter 2). Next he offers an ethical-religious perspective on work in light of Sacred Scripture (chapter 3). Chapter 4 explains various aspects of the teaching on professional work contained in the spirit of Opus Dei. Finally, he considers in detail some dimensions of the sanctification of work (chapter 5)
