Last night I read an article about this group, Laser Monks, a Cistercian monastery that sells ink and toner refills and office supplies as part of their ministry. They make money that supports their order, give part of their proceeds to help good causes, and take prayer requests along with orders for supplies.

This strikes me as a unique way to combine spiritual practice and practical service to people, and I wish them the very best as their business grows. They remind me a bit of the monks who run the Jampot in Eagle River, MI, a bake/jam shop along the highway.
