Wychowawcze znaczenie pracy w świetle nauczania Jana Pawła II

Antoni Tomkiewicz, Stanisław Chrobak


Among various functions played by labour in man's life there is a formative function as well. This function is taken here to mean the liberation of human creative potential which tends to the development of a complete mature personality.

The main aim of the present paper is to show the formative values of labour in the light of John Paul II's teaching. This question has been tackled in two aspects. First, the value of labour has been shown in the formative process of man's individual personality. The paper reveals the process of man becoming perfect through labour. The latter contributes to the development of man's various abilities and needs. Thanks to labour man satisfies his basic needs and develops higher spiritual needs. Labour also bears a religious character and contributes to man's sanctification.

The second aspect refers to the formative process of man's social personality. Labour bears a fellowship, since in each work there is always a man who performs it for somebody and in cooperation with others. According to John Paul II's teaching proper labour contributes to the formation of correct attitudes towards nature. A personal relation between man and the Creator limits man's self-will in his approach to the world of nature. Therefore man is responsible for all goods which God put into his care. Worldly goods cannot belong exclusively to individuals, but have a common destination.
