God doesn’t expect lazy or idle bodies, he requires us to work and to contribute to our own salvation and to that of the others. We need to be conscious that the effort we put in to better our own lives doesn’t yield benefits for us only, but it does bring graces to our families, friends and loved ones and for all those that are in need and can’t do anything on their own. We are not called to choose or to prefer Mary or Marta but to know when to be each of them or both at the same time. For that goes the rule of saint Benedict Ora et Labora.
