    When you were talking about the shadow moments of work, I thought of the curse. Adam was created to work, which is good, but now the ground is cursed, so the goodness of work is broken. At the same time, since work is under the curse, we have hope that one day it will be redeemed when Christ returns and unites all things to himself. And that hope is what should enable us to persevere.

    As with all forms of suffering, hope in God does not necessarily lessen the pain, but it strengthens our ability to bear it.
