Cardinal Peter K. Turkson, in a recent address to French businesspeople, spoke about integrating faith and work.
In its exercise of business, therefore, humanity would become a ‘rock’ that sustains creation through the practice of love and justice. And this appears to be really the vocation of the Christian business leader: to practice love and justice and to teach the business household for which he or she is responsible to do likewise, for the sustenance of all creation, beginning with our brothers and sisters.
The cardinal was focusing on themes from the pontifical council’s new document ‘Vocation of the Business Leader: A Reflection.’ He urged his audience to focus not only on business, but an integrated spiritual life in order to avoid a personal ‘disconnectedness’.
