Does the search for meaning in work matter? and is it even possible to ask such a question against a backdrop of mass youth unemployment, widespread poverty and growing inequality? Drawing on the experience of the Mondragon co-operative movement in Spain and other innovative models of employment and enterprise from around the world, as well as the visions and values derived from his faith, Chris Beales explores how “work” might be humanised and education and employment made not only responsive to what the Economy needs but also purposeful, satisfying and rewarding for people.

The Credit Union Movement has always stressed that all humanity are brothers and sisters and puts this ideal into practice in the economic field. No words have expressed this idea more beautifully or more meaningfully than the Prayer of St. Francis which has since been widely recognised as the official prayer of the Credit Union Movement.
Make me an instrument of thy peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master
Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving, that we receive
It is in pardoning, that we are pardoned
And it is in dying, that we are born to eternal life.
