Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

And again [Scripture calls out to us]: "Whoever has ears for hearing let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches" (Rev 2:7). And what does He say? "Come, sons, hear me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord" (Ps 34:12). "Run while you have the light" of life, "lest the shadows" of death "encompass you" (Jn 12:35).


-- Rule of St. Benedict prol.11-13
