Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

And above all, as regards this rule, he must keep it in all respects. That way, after having ministered well, he will hear from the Lord what the good servant heard who dispensed grain to his fellow servants at the right time: ‘Amen I say to you,’ he said, ‘he places him over all his goods’ (Mt 24:47).


Rule of Saint Benedict 64.20-22 (said about the abbot, but perhaps a good reminder that when the Lord returns, those who serve well will be given a share in Christ’s reign)
