May Day 2017 Chittagong ArchdioceseThe employers in the world can only pay us the just wages or give us honor in the world. But the master Jesus Christ will reward us inheritance in the eternity. So when we work, we not only work for our employer but also work for our master Jesus Christ. This idea gives a new quality in the service of laity. Pastoral Coordinator of Chittagong Archdiocese Mr. Manik Willver D’Costa shared the above statement while delivering his keynote speech in the seminar arranged by the Archdiocesan Migrant Desk in order to observe the glorious May Day. The seminar May Day 2017 Chittagong Archdiocesewas based on the theme: “It is the Lord Christ you are serving. (Col 3: 24b)”

Mr. Manik also mentioned that, when we work, we need to work full time. We cannot steal time from the employer as the master Jesus Christ is seeing everything and every moment we do and we live. Also there is no part time Christian or layman. All the Christians should be full time. But obviously there is layman who has ‘laid’ down their job!
