The Post Catches Up With John Paul II 25 Years Late
Breaking news in the Washington Post: Work that is meaningful makes you happier than work that makes you money....*
Although welcoming the content of the article, Catholic Social Teaching professors nationwide grumbled at the notion of "breaking news." "If they had only read John Paul II's Laborem Exercens, or On Human Work, they would have been happier 25 years earlier," sighed Dr. James Richmond, professor of theology from RBCU. "Good thing much of my happiness comes from teaching people the good news...even when they refuse to read it."
Most professors contacted for this story were not available because they were taking the holiday off, as the encyclical encourages people to do for needed rest.
*Bloggers always knew that.
Hat tip to Susan at Musings of a Discerning Woman for the article.
