I’m taking up a new full time job that is servile in nature (factory work). It’s Monday-Friday but I get double time if I’m willing to work Sunday. I recently finished high school and am entering university in the fall. I often hear about unnecessary servile work being sinful on the Lord’s Day. I just want to be responsible by giving God His due honour while at the same time not missing an opportunity if I can take advantage of it.
Should or I can I receive a dispensation from my pastor? Should I only work 4 hours instead of a full day? Or would it be best to refuse that kind of work on Sunday entirely? I would never miss Mass, and I know I would need to set aside adequate time for prayer, leisure, rest, family, and charity. I will for sure discuss this with priests I know, but am also looking for further input. Thanks!
