We tend to regard work as toil, and leisure as true self-fulfilment. However, used as means to enter into the rest of God, they become complementary.

First published when computers were in their infancy, and when there was a hope that people would be able to enjoy increasing leisure, this short essay is still pertinent to our thinking on the use of time both for work and play. Mother Mary Clare urges us to reflect on whether we regard work as toil and drudgery and leisure time as the real place of self-fulfilment and self-realisation. From there, she suggests ways of perceiving that, used as means to enter into the rest which God gives, they become complementary.
