Thought of the Day July 11, 2016

By 11:22 AM



"He who labors as he prays lifts his heart to God with his hands. " (St. Benedict) The same thing can be said in reverse order: he who prays as he labors lifts his heart to God with his hands. How different will our life be if we can labor while in prayer, thereby making our labor our prayer. This doesn't replace quiet prayer at other times. It just allows us to be in an attitude of prayer throughout our day no matter what we are doing. This may be what St. Paul means when he says that we are called to unceasing prayer. Prayer gives heart and meaning to our day.
