MIA Prayer Intention: All whose Labour Contributes to our Living and our Lifestyle

It is 35 years today, 14 September, since the promulgation of Pope John Paul II‘s encyclical Laborem Exercens (‘On Human Work’) which affirmed the value of work, the dignity of the worker and the vital importance of work to the life of the community.

Let us give thanks for the efforts of all those— employees and volunteers— whose labour contributes to our living and our lifestyles. And let us resolve not to benefit from the labour of those who have been trafficked or exploited in the production of the goods and services we enjoy. Instead, let us educate ourselves on the fundamental principles and rights at work (conventions and recommendations) of workers to help ensure a fair chance at prosperity for all who labour.

MIA opposes human trafficking. Read more about local and international efforts to address this issue.
