I have always been jealous of how many of the saints were able to get a thousand things done in a day, do so on 2-4 hours of sleep, and when they weren't praying they were able to learn more stuff in a few days than a normal human could in a few years. Of course, they were able to do all of this by the grace of God and through their daily reception of the Eucharist, but for the rest of us who are struggling just to find time to pray one rosary a day - I thought a little cheating might be in order.
