For the Community, work is a source of life
Monastic communities face economic problems that are common to everyone. Work is required if you want to live, and not always in the circumstances you would have chosen. A real job that provides a livelihood is a condition of poverty. Saint Benedict has explicitly ruled out begging for his monks because he wants them to imitate the example of the ancient monks and the Apostles who worked with their hands for their livelihood ...
Work does not only offer a part of constraint ... It turns into a sacrifice of praise, it contributes its part to the uninterrupted prayer that weaves the monk's day ...
By absorbing part of the monk's dynamism and channeling it towards a useful service to the fraternity, manual work makes the inner man freer for the work which is properly his.
