Making Space for Sabbath in our Lives

This column by Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI, ran in "our" Milwaukee Catholic Herald August 7, 2008.
We are meant to work for six days and then have a one-day sabbatical; work for six years and then have a one-year sabbatical;

No more weekends, but throw in sabbatical every sixth week and sixth month and I'd have to consider it.
and, finally, work for a lifetime and have an eternity of sabbatical, an eternity of resting in God.

My rough calculation is all these sabbaticals would, overall, leave about as many work days as a three day week, only half what God put in (Genesis 1:1-3).
