Italian bishop urges CEO: respect Sunday rest

August 20, 2015

An Italian bishop has written an open letter to the CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles calling for the closing of its plant in Melfi from 10:00 PM on Saturdays to 10:00 PM on Sundays.

Rejoicing that more fathers are able to provide for their families because of an improving economy, Bishop Gianfranco Todisco of Melfi-Rapolla-Venosa said that respecting Sunday rest “not only promotes the welfare of the family, but also becomes the best investment a company can make … because it gives top priority to the dignity of the human person, with his legitimate needs and aspirations that cannot be put to death by the law of profit.”
