Philip Booth appeared as a witness to give a Catholic perspective. He made the point that idleness was not a good thing. However, the Catholic Church is rather non-prescriptive when it comes to the details of how we spend our leisure time. The key thing is that leisure helps us develop our mind, body and soul. There is even room for some frivolous pursuits in a well-ordered leisure time.
