I used to work with my hands, as I still want to, and I want all the other brothers to work at a task which is honest and becoming to our manner of life. Those who do no know how to work should learn, not because they are eager for the pay due their labor, but for example’s sake and to banish idleness. And when we receive no pay for our work, let us have recourse to the table of the Lord, begging alms from door to door.
