The work of God

St. Benedict spoke of the “Opus Dei,” the work of God that
was the priority of the monk. In this context, he was referring to
prayer. Prayer keeps us hooked into our Source of life. It should
be more important to us than food or sleep—again because our
very life depends upon it. Jesus came to redeem us, to overturn
the curses that befell humanity because of original sin. By taking
up our cross and following Christ even in our work, we can
share in the “works of the Father” and be miracle workers in the
eyes of the fallen world.
