A nun had the heavy responsibility of instructing elementary and middle school age novice nuns, so she requested another assistant from the Master.

The Master asked,” Is it not true that secular schools normally have fifty students in one class?” The nun responded, “But that is different! They only need to take care of their students for 8 hours a day, but I have to be with them 24 hours a day.”

The Master said, “I have over one thousand ordained disciples. What should I do?” The nun silently joined her palms and resolved to accept her responsibility.
