A Daily Quote to Inspire Your Catholic Faith
“Engagement describes an attitude, a commitment, as well as the day-to-day activities of a calling or profession. The good that we can do at work and at home for family, individuals and for society is far too important to ignore. We are called to collaborate in God’s creative and redemptive work, called to use our skills and talents for the greater good.”
