Refusing to bow to the Idol of Work

From Pope Benny’s Homily for St Joseph’s Day:

“Work is of primary importance for man's fulfillment and the development of society, and this is why it is necessary that it always be organized and developed in full respect of human dignity and at the service of the common good. At the same time, it is indispensable that man not allow himself to be subjected to work, that he not idolize it, intending to find in it the ultimate and definitive meaning of life.”

Thank you, Holy Father, I feel much better now about leaving the computer and going out to have a pipe.
