The CCC on the Opus Dei

"Creation was fashioned with a view to the sabbath and therefore for the worship and adoration of God. Worship is inscribed in the order of creation. As the rule of St. Benedict says, nothing should take precedence over 'the work of God,' that is, solemn worship. This indicates the right order of human concerns."

Catechism of the Catholic Church #347. "Creatio intuitu sabbati effecta est et propterea intuitu cultus et adorationis Dei. Cultus est in creationis ordine inscriptus. «Nihil operi Dei praeponatur», dicit sancti Benedicti Regula, ita rectum sollicitudinum humanarum denotans ordinem."
