Steve Case, from the book God is Here which is a modern look at Brother Lawrence's The Practice of the Presence of God. "There are two more reasons I like Brother Lawrence. One, he was a cook, although working in the kitchen was painful to him. He often returned to help in the kitchen even when he was assigned to other duties in his later years. In fact, he often said that he saw little difference between the time the monastery set aside for prayer and the time he spent in his kitchen." In Lawrence's own words... "Lord of all pots and pans and things... Make me a saint by getting meals And washing up plates!"
