A Little Theology of Work from the Pen of a Teenager

ElisabethWork is the brother of prayer. Sometimes it seems tough, but there are satisfactions for those who endure it… Virtue, meanwhile, is that tender flower which seeks to immolate itself for the benefit of others, which makes happy those around it, which gives gentle consolation… Work and virtue! Voilà two weapons we ought to be armed with.
Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity (1880–1906)
