A Theology of Work - Bishop Robert Barron

"Friends, is work something good or bad? Is it central to being human, or a punishment resulting from sin? And how do we understand our work theologically, tying it to God? On today’s episode of “The Word on Fire Show,” Brandon Vogt and I discuss the Catholic Church’s view toward the dignity of work and the rights of workers, learning from Dorothy Day, St. Josemaría Escrivá, and several recent popes. A listener asks, what do you mean by the term “transcendence,” and how does it differ from immanent? 00:00 | Intro 01:33 | Bishop Barron's vacation time 02:58 | New book - The Theology of Robert Barron by Matthew Levering 05:48 | Bishop Barron's first job 08:51 | Is work actually a good thing? 12:23 | The Christian way of understanding work 16:36 | Significance of Jesus being a worker 19:13 | Pope Leo XIII and "Rerum Novarum" 22:49 | Dorothy Day and the defense of workers 26:18 | St. Josemaria Escriva and finding God in your work 28:31 | Listener question 31:38 | New book reminder" from video introduction
