Each day of our life produces some work, and every work is part of the days of our lives. In other words, our entire life is a productive story, a continuous workshop through which works are produced, noisy or silent, big or small and also short and autonomous or large, continuous and interleaved.
In any case, the time that we all have available today is much more than what previous generations had at their disposal, because technological equipment has sharply increased the number of hours we can be active – e.g. electricity – and this means that everyone enjoys long-lasting free time and can make use of it in any project they consider to be bigger and more substantial for themselves and their personal interests.
And it is obvious that the cultivation of faith today is easier but more expensive as well, and every one of us is called to make decisions every day about how we manage the issues of our faith and our livelihood. The result proves that we grant infinitely more time to increase our wealth and quality of life than we have to promote and meet the needs of our living faith.
