Who are ‘those who labor’?

11 December 2016

laborThe verb ‘to labor’ means to tire yourself out, to suffer. So ‘for those who labor’, means we pray for people who’re suffering. Not from serious illness, because we’ve already mentioned the sick. This was at the time when people labored hard in mines and quarries and so on. That’s who the Church is praying for: people who work extremely hard.
