Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

Having answered these things [regarding who will dwell in the tent of His kingdom], the Lord expects us each day to answer these holy admonitions of His with deeds, as we should. So, the days of this life have been extended for us as a truce, for the sake of correcting evil ways, as the apostle says: ‘Do you not know that the patience of God is leading you to repentance?’ (Rom 2:4). For the devoted Lord says: ‘I do not want the sinner’s death, but that he convert and live’ (Ez 33:11).


-- Rule of St. Benedict prol.35-38
