To Saint Cholerika
Cholerika, while being the first saint, is undoubtedly also the most enigmatic. Mankind’s hunger for knowledge has been inherited from them, as well as the ability to hone crafts. To know the world is to study it. Like layers of an onion, one never stops learning, not in a dozen of lifetimes. By following Cholerika, we should be devoted to accumulate insight and skills like one would collect trinkets or precious gems, and be sure to understand its worth. Cholerika doesn’t differentiate between the validity of academic expertise and artisanal proficiency; and neither should we, lest we become condescending. It is important to experience joy and fulfilment through the work one does, and recognise it as a gift, as the default disposition of a person. Resisting work indicates that something is amiss; disorderly.
