Description

About the Colloquium: Work as a human enterprise, manifests itself as both a pre and post lapsarian reality. Humans made in the image and likeness of God share in His creative potency and apply their personal talents within the larger context of community. Pope Francis comments on the fundamental role of work as did his predecessors saying “"Work is fundamental to the dignity of a person. Work, to use an image, "anoints" us with dignity, fills us with dignity, makes us like God, who has worked and still works, who always acts.” Commerce and the business of managing and exchanging goods brings with it a particular ethos that is always related to how we understand creation and our place within it. In short, work has an ethical and religious component. Since the industrial revolution, the role of work has fundamentally shifted and nearly two centuries of Catholic Social Teaching provide insight on the Christian understanding of work and how it’s fruits shape the broader economy. The 3rd Annual UMary – Tempe Catholic Studies Colloquium will engage the broad intersection of Catholic Social Teaching and business. To this end this Colloquium will explore the following areas in 3 sessions:

“To guard and to till” - Work as a fundamental human good
“To renew the temporal order” - Work as an apostolate
“The Fruits of Work” – Work as self-gift
