Work and Leisure

Modern man finds himself divided between work and play. But work doesn’t have to be a daily grind. And true leisure isn’t mere amusement or escapism. Michael Naughton, director of the Catholic Studies program at the University of St. Thomas, helps us to get work right.

Questions Covered:

  • 28:56 - Is there any Catholic teaching about an economy of self-sufficiency rather than a jobs economy?
  • 33:33 - What is a good balance between work and leisure and how do we develop that balance?
  • 46:30 - I recently began working at an assisted living facility as an activity assistant. How can I help the residents live true leisure?
  • 49:35 - Can you speak more about how we are made in the image of God and how that relates to our relationship to leisure?
