Worship & Work

Deep calls to Deep

At the heart of the 1500 year Benedictine spiritual tradition, "Worship and Work" succinctly describes the daily rhythm and spiritual dynamic of the monks of the Order of Saint Benedict.

A vocation to Worship, the first Work of the Benedictine monks is Worship. The Benedictine Work of Worship; the liturgy of the hours, daily Mass, and the ancient tradition of lectio divina, strives to serve to the spiritual need of the world and Church.

Daily Work among the Benedictine monks articulates and punctuates the spiritual life of the community, giving physical expression to the spiritual fruits of a life of Worship.

Worship inspires Work. 
Work reveals Worship.

When families gather for meals, they are nourished with more than the food placed before them. Mealtime is a time to be nourished with the companionship of people as well. Both the food we share and the people with whom we share it are gifts from God. So it is fitting that we pause at mealtime to offer thanks and praise to God. This collection of prayers echoes the Scripture-yet another source of God's sustenance-of the church year. From Advent to Ordinary Time, from the Solemnity of St. Joseph to the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, families will be reminded of the link between the dining room table and the eucharistic table.

Fr. Michael Kwatera, OSB, Ph.D., is Director of Liturgy and Director of Oblates for Saint John's Abbey, Collegeville, Minnesota. He is a teacher and the author of several Liturgical Press books, including Come to the Feast: Liturgical Theology of, by, and for Everybody.
