The Sanctification of Work
by Jose Luis Illanes
WORK IS EVERYONE'S PRACTICAL CALLING, and becomes the occasion for serving God for most people whose calling is in the midst of the world. This book explores the idea that one can become holy in the midst of ordinary work by examining several subjects, including work and holiness, work and the monastic and religious state, and Opus Dei and lay spirituality.
The author, born in Seville, Spain in 1933, is a canon lawyer and theologian who specializes in the theology of the laity. This book was first published in Italian in 1965 and has since been translated into Spanish and English.
