With this motto, the Professor of Aesthetics and Theory of the Arts addressed the question of work, Ricardo Piñero (León, 1965). She did it on Thursday, April 25, in the Patio de la Infanta, in an event organized by Alumni Universidad de Navarra in collaboration with Fundación IberCaja. Her title, “Work and life: the pending revolution”, It attracted two hundred participants who came to rediscover the meaning of work in dignity, trust and, above all, service.

The meeting began at 7:30 p.m., with the presentation by Jorge Cartañá, president of the Alumni Board in Zaragoza. Piñero began his conference by defining what work means, starting with the university and philosophical field where he operates: “We are the crew opposite Buzz Lightyear’s: From infinity to hereafter. We are interested in the infinite here and now.” To illustrate this idea of work as a vehicle of transcendencecited Holy Scripture, when in the Creation story it is noted that God created human beings to work (Gen 2, 15).

Work is not a punishment. For the bird, is flying a punishment?

He then pointed out the core relevance of work and the role it plays in people’s lives. Not only as a connector, but as part of its essence, for the intrinsic relationship that it has with the dignity of man. Although it doesn’t seem easy every day: “The saw peaks are essential. Even the downs. Because they are going to take us higher”. “Happiness, freedom and truth” are part of the authentic development of the worker, when it comes to noble work. It is not about entering the world of work at any price: “What allows us true progress is recognize our origin and improve where we are going. That is true development.”

“The key to life for a human being is that his think Be yours do: coherence between what you think and what you do.” That is the path that allows us to welcome the gift of work that comes from Above. To conclude, he wanted to highlight three teachings of Josemaría Escrivá, Aragonese saint, regarding this matter: firstly, that work is “participation in the creative work of God”; secondly, “redeemed and redemptive reality”; finally, “the means and path to holiness -authentic happiness-, a sanctifiable and sanctifying reality” (It is Christ who passesno. 47).

To conclude the event, the Magnificent Rector of the University of Navarra made her entrance, Maria Ibarburu: “Our university was born from the dream of some pioneers, driven by the audacity of a dream and friendship. 72 years later, it is still a place of daring, of embarking on difficult adventures and of doing it with friends.” Then he announced a new project: the creation of the BIOMA Center, Biodiversity and Environment, from “the 360 ​​vision of science, at the service of the person and society, of the social issue.” He described it this way before encouraging attendees to continue helping the 427 students who benefited from the Alumni Scholarship, the university’s flagship.
