“…we work in this way, we maintain inner peace, and our whole day is sanctified. Unfortunately, we have not realised that when we do our work in a hurry, we become nervous. And when work is done nervously, it is not sanctified. Our goal should not be to get busy with many things and live in constant agony. This is a demonic condition.   When monastic handicrafts are made with calmness and prayer, they are sanctified, and they also sanctify the [world].”
