Man created to His image “must cooperate with his Creator in the perfecting of creation and communicate to the earth the spiritual imprint he himself has received”. God Who has endowed man with intelligence, imagination and sensitivity, has also given him the means of completing His work. In a certain way – whether he be artist or craftsman, engaged in management, industry or agriculture – everyone who works is a creator. Bent over a material that resists his efforts, a man by his work gives his imprint to it, acquiring, as he does so, perseverance, skill and a spirit of invention. Further, when work is done in common, when hope, hardship, ambition and joy are shared, it brings together and firmly unites the wills, minds and hearts of men: in its accomplishment, men find themselves to be brothers.
