Taking Care of Children Is the Greatest Prayer
With kind words the abbot said to the father: “I was glad for you last night. You sang all night and prayed. You did well! But you would have had a bigger blessing to sit a half an hour next to your wife and help her feed and put the babies to sleep. Because for you, the ones who are married, the prostrations are your children. When they will grow up you will have time for the rest.
