Saints of the desk

Today is the feast day of St. Martin de Porres, a 16th-century Dominican friar from Peru. St. Martin is primarily renowned for his humility and selflessness. But he was also a diligent worker.
One biography tells the story of how at a young age, he became a servant in the Dominican priory and worked so diligently that he became known as the "Saint of the broom."

For those of us who work in an office, may we follow St. Martin's example and work with such great diligence and selflessness that perhaps we will one day be known as "Saints of the desk."

(I obtained St. Martin's picture from this site.)
