November 6 -- St. Winnoc

"If any would not work, neither should he eat." On that precept, St. Winnoc, a former prince, set the standard for labor in the monastery. No job was too onerous or disagreeable. As he aged and his capacity diminished, he prayed for help to keep working. Some poor dumb monk was struck blind for peeking in to see how old Brother Winnoc was still able to grind the corn to flour. Fortunately, Providence heard Winnoc's prayers for forgiveness and healed the impertinent monk.

"If any would not work, neither should he eat."
