We live to praise. And in these days of the Easter Octave, there is an urgency to our rejoicing, singing Alleluias over and over in endless variation. Such is the Work of God which Saint Benedict says we must prefer. Our work is praise, which is somehow wonderfully useless- it accomplishes nothing- what we "get" is the "inestimable privilege of worshiping Almighty God."
