Pax et Bonum! Francis saw work as a normal part of human life, and so wanted it to be part of the life of the friars...not pretensions to some sort of nobility, even of a religious type! There are, of course, may different types of labor, but all can be directed to the love of God and the love of others if done with love, care, and joy. Not always easy, but Francis said we should do our best and let Jesus fill in what's missing. God bless!
