How to Transform Work Into a Source of Strength, Holiness, and Joy

Written by St. John Paul II's teacher, Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski, they show you how to change any workplace into a workshop for sanctity for yourself and for those around you. Regardless of the work you do, these pages will make your attitude better, your work easier, and your life holier.
