A voluntary dedication,

a daily assignment of all work and play and activity

for the glory of God

can make anything genuine prayer,

whether it is digging ditches,

doing the dishes,

selling insurance,

or even playing golf,

which is often the same as digging ditches.

Do you know when people really become spiritual?

It is when they become the slaves of God

and are branded with His sign,

which is the sign of the cross,

in token that they have given Him their freedom.

St. Teresa of Avila
