Sanctification of Jobs: A Ritual to Orient the Economic Behaviors of Catholics in Vietnam

Author(s): Huynh Ngoc Thu, Tran Tan Dang Long, Le Thi My Ha


Sanctification of jobs is a ritual that Catholics celebrate to ask God to bless their jobs in the coming year. During this Mass, people will present their jobs to God with the wish that these works will be sanctified and that they will be fruitful and successful. These jobs to be blessed must be genuine, not against the teaching of the God and the Catholic Church. They are, of course, not harmful to themselves, their families, and society. Through the research regarding people's jobs in Viet Nam, we have come to know that the Mass of sanctifying works in this area helps people to realize the significance of jobs in everyday life. This is an authentic act according to the Catholic Church's teaching and it is to bring glory to God.
