Impresa Orante (prayer is the firm’s business as well) is a plan that intends and aims to give help, comfort and spiritual support to those who are employed or unemployed and to those who would like to be in work and who are unable to get back in ...
Given the times in which we live and the fatigue we experience because of the confused state of the economy which, having lost its natural form, has grave repercussions both within our region and nation (and beyond), we mean to take the opportunity to 'engage in this game’ with an unexpected ‘hand’; that is ... prayer ... and, in particular, the prayer of the Rosary. It goes without saying that the greatest testimonial to and irreplaceable ally of the Firm that Prays is Mary. When real comfort and concrete help are needed, let’s make it clear, Our Mother is a safe guarantee.
And in our case, to meet a challenge that comes close to the impossible, an ‘ace up our sleeve’ is needed: Our Heavenly Mother in combination with the great St. Joseph. Since we like to value on the intangible excellence of our territory as well, we intend to turn to the intercession of our saints here in Torino. When they were here in the flesh, they experienced their own trials ... and how. And since they are folk that “know how it is”, they cannot fail to give an indispensable help.
Entrepreneurs, workers, unemployed, retired: L'Impresa Orante is our space for prayerful intercession for the local economy that we might once again find creative and courageous
means to identify new ways to reestablish the economic work model.
We begin within our own territory and with our own experiences.
Our prayer, directed by Mary and Joseph, with the intercession o the Saints, will do
its work in these times.
Bet on it!
How does it work?
For those who want to take a chance on the firm that prays in order to rediscover the power of prayer, of fasting and of taking part in the Eucharist, the rules of the game are few and clear.
Make gratitude our daily vitamin, everywhere and always.Knowing how to be thankful is a powerful natural remedy against unhappiness and depression, an easy thing to do in difficult times such as those we are now experiencing. The peace that comes through this exercise of expressing our gratitude is good for not only our spirits but also for our bodies as well.
- Trust Maryto take charge of this game, as we as for help from our own Patron Saints. Here in Turin we can have recourse to a whole host of Social Saints that grew up in our city over the past centuries.
- Recite the rosary with the mediations that have been specifically written for l'Impresa Orante (the 'firms that pray'), the litanies to the Blessed Mother and the prayer to St. Joseph at your own place of work every Friday of the week at a time that easily allows as many employees to participate as possible. One suggestion would be to do this before or after lunch, or in the evening before everyone goes home.
- Go to Mass on the last Friday of each month, together with the various groups of l'Imprese Orante. Include an improvised penitential act, and be sure there is an association between the prayer intentions and the theme of work.
