"World at Work" and "Work in the World"

"A person's life is built up every day from work; from work it derives its specific dignity. "
(Pope John Paul)
Per the US Bishops:
"All work has a threefold moral significance.
1. It is a principle way that people exercise the distinctive human capacity for self-expression and self-realization.
2. It is the ordinary way for human beings to fulfill their material needs.
3. Work enables people to contribute to the well-being of the larger community.
Work is not only for oneself. It is for one's family, for the nation, and indeed for the benefit of the entire human family.
Thus, when choosing a career, people need to consider their personal inclinations and interests, and the effect their work will have on the world as a whole."
