Saved Through Work

I had to work this weekend. I looked for something from the Desert Fathers to pick me up:

There was in the Cells an old man called Apollo. If someone came to find him about doing a piece of work, he would set out joyfully, saying, 'I am going to work with Christ today, for the salvation of my soul, for that is the reward he gives.'

Work and studies are a blessing, something that we sometimes forget.
