JANESVILLE -- "There is no simple blueprint for a spirituality of work for the unemployed. Such spirituality is especially difficult because it must begin in frustration, in a dark night of loss and devastation.

"At the start we may be frightened. The outcome for each unemployed worker, as for Abraham so long ago, is unknown. But the spirituality of work offers an invitation to find God in a new way.

"A spirituality of work for unemployed workers rests on the conviction that God's grace is somehow present in every circumstance." -- The Spirituality of Work by Joseph Gosse

Individuals are invited to join the area unemployed and their families at a Mass celebrated by Bishop Robert C. Morlino on Tuesday, Dec. 16, at 6:30 p.m. at St. William Church in Janesville. Area pastors will be concelebrating. Refreshments will follow.

The event is being sponsored by the Janesville/Milton Cluster of Catholic Churches.
