In Their Monotony

               'The most commonplace actions, the most ordinary events of daily life -
               such as taking food, attending to our business or work,
               fulfilling our social duties,
               taking rest or recreation;
               all those actions that occur every day and literally weave,
               in their monotony and successive routine,
               the thread of our entire life,
               can be transformed by grace and love
               into actions very pleasing to God and rich in merit.'

               Abbot Marmion

                    Painting:  Edmund Tarbell, Girl Mending, 1910
