Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

And therefore the abbot should neither teach nor establish nor order anything apart from the precept of the Lord, but rather let his command or teaching be like the leaven of divine justice sprinkled in the minds of the disciples. All the while the abbot is to be mindful that both his teaching and the obedience of his disciples will be scrutinized at the terrifying judgment of God.


-- Rule of St. Benedict 2.4-6
