Photo: Ora et Labora
Happy Labor Day! “Ora et labora” — “pray and work” — is the motto of the Benedictines and pops up when it’s least expected. This time it popped up on “Tattoosday,” a weekly blog about tattoos. The blogger snapped the photo of an elderly man’s wrists at a wedding reception, where a guest asserted that it was an accurate motto: “I will tell you that he does is work and pray … or tell us to work and pray … it really is quite a theme with him.” And a good motto for us all!
