5unday, September z:

Joy, because I get an extra day off of regular work. Dread, because I want to fill all three days with home work, and l'll never get everything done. This is especially ironic on Labor Day weekend, when we're encouraged to rest from our labors and recognize the great value of work.

emphasizes the "to work," in a sense. impoftance of putting our faith in action-putting it The first work was done by God, as the author states: "Humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you." At our baptism, the seed of the Word was planted in us bythe Lord and nourished by our parents and godparents.

It's interesting that this weekend's second reading

But as mature adults, the responsibility to carry that Word into action is ours. The author stresses, "Be doers of the Word and not hearers only." The author also describes pure religion as caring "for orphans and widows in their affliction," which in our modern context means to assure that the needs of the most vulnerable are fullY met' Whether it's a long holiday weekend or a regular weekday, what work are we about? Do we put our faith into action at our workplace, in our home, in our community? Are we doers of the Word? This Labor Day might be an excellent time to reexamine our work and, if it's not there already, move "help fulfill the needs of the most vulnerable" to the Janel Esker I sundaybulletins(Oliguori.org forefront.

The Nativitg of the Blessed Virgin MarU

It requires of us-and this scares me for myself--the gift in return of life and person, body and soul. But we would rather bargain with God: I'll do this and neuer do th.at, and you will help me get rny children througlt school or keep me healtlry to carefor my aging mother. But God doesn't bargain, and he didn't break a promise to you. You proposed a deal, but God didn't agree to it. God will send you a word or sign to let you know he is indeed with you. I'll pray for you and your mother, and I ask that you do the same for me. J ohn Hamrogae, CSsR
