In a radio interview for the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker, a cardinal from Peru discussed the sanctification of work and outlined a typical day in his own life.
"How many hours does a cardinal work?" asked journalist Miguel Humberto Aguirre. "I think all of them," replied Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani of Lima.
In his weekly Saturday radio program on station RPP April 29, Cardinal Cipriani said that his day usually starts at 5:00 a.m. and normally ends around 10 or 11 at night.
He said that he gets up "early to be able to pray because there's a moment for prayer, for the Divine Office where there won't be phone calls or interruptions. So you try to do it first thing in the morning. Very early, I go into the chapel and many times I celebrate Mass" at that time.
