“Your work too must become a personal prayer”

Before you start working, place a crucifix on your desk or beside the tools you work with. From time to time glance at it... When tiredness creeps in, your eyes will go towards Jesus, and you will find new strength to continue with your task.

(The Way of the Cross, Eleventh Station, 5)
