Reflection of San Josemaria Escrivá on the professional environment and job opportunities 
 
Reflection: words of Saint Josemaria 
Professional work is also an apostolate, the occasion of giving to other men, to reveal to Christ and to bring them to God the Father. (That Christ who passes, N. 49) 
 
Live your ordinary life; work where you are, trying to fulfill the duties of your state, finish well the work of your profession or your job, growing up, improving each day. Be loyal, understanding with others and demanding with yourself. Be mortified and cheerful. 
 
That will be your apostolate. And, without you finding motives, for your poor misery, those around you will come to you, and with a natural, simple conversation – on the way out of work, in a family reunion, on the bus, in a walk, anywhere – chat of concerns that are in the soul of all, although sometimes some do not want to realize: they will understand more, when they start to really search God. (Friends of God, N. 273) 
 
To find a job 
For God, by the mediation of our Lady, to make me find a good job, in which I can grow professionally and give my best. And to help me see, in the professional environment, a field open to the accomplishment of the apostolic mission that God trusts all the baptized, taking advantage of the opportunities he gives me to help colleagues, friends, collaborators, clients, etc., to discover the wonders of the Christian faith. 
 
To do a good job 
So that God will help me to see, in the professional environment, a field open to the accomplishment of the apostolic mission that God entrusts to all the baptized, taking advantage of the opportunities that he gives me to help colleagues, friends, collaborators, clients, etc., to discover the wonders of the Christian faith. 
 
Pray the prayer to Saint Josemaria
