Pray and Work…

“Do you want the prayer inside you? Do you want to find Christ? Well, you will find it here with the people we are working with. Do you hear them chatting idly, joking and laughing? Be careful as much as you can not to imitate them or to say to yourself “What kind of people are they?” And, to condemn them. You will be silent, do you work on your own and constantly say the Prayer. Then you will see what prayer you will find while working here in the mountain, while you’re killing yourself at work.”
