The short reading for Mondays in Week 1 of the Liturgy of the Hours during Ordinary Time comes out swinging…
Do not let anyone have any food if he refuses to do any work. Now we hear that there are some of you who are living in idleness, doing no work themselves but interfering with everyone else’s. In the Lord Jesus Christ, we order and call on people of this kind to go on quietly working and earning the food that they eat. My brothers, never grow tired of doing what is right.
But, I’m a manager? Isn’t doing no work but interfering with everyone else’s work my job description?
In all seriousness, it is a good kick in the butt to get moving today.
