Pope Benedict XVIDuring his summer break last August Pope Benedict XVI revealed his feelings about the dangers of working too hard.

Quoting the 12th century musings of St. Bernard of Clairvaux, he said “watch out for the dangers of an excessive activity, whatever… the job that you hold, because many jobs often lead to the ‘hardening of the heart’, as well as ’suffering of the spirit, loss of intelligence”.
“This warning is valid for every kind of occupation, even those involving the governance of the church,” the Pope re-iterated.

So there you go!
