A few weeks ago, I was reading an excerpt about how a man chose to serve as a missionary on a college campus following graduation.

Are those who work in an office destined to live a life of mediocrity without meaning?
Upon further reflection, I realized that the various saints show us that holiness is possible in every state of life, even at the office cubicle. Maybe one day we will even have a patron saint for office workers. Yet until an office worker is canonized, I have offered a few suggestions in living out your faith at work.
