Technological wonders, human inventions, can be useful tools if they are used for the service of others, but can encourage laziness if used for the ease of the self. Good, honest toil, difficult physical work, challenges us and strengthens our characters. “Opus Dei” means “God’s Work” after all, so work is something to be valued. The more arduous the work, the stronger the effort and one will achieve better results.
Perhaps doing without technology for a while is a useful method of corporal mortification.
