Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict
[Continuing St. Benedict’s description of the four kinds of monks: the third kind]
But the third kind of monks is the most detestable kind, namely, the sarabaites. They are not proved ‘as gold in the furnace’ (Prov 27:21) by a rule, with experience as a teacher. Instead, their nature has become soft as lead. Still faithful to the world, for they serve it by their actions, they are known to lie to God by their tonsure. In a group of two or three, or even alone, they are without a shepherd, gathered in sheepfolds of their own, not the Lord's. For them the law is the will of their desires. When they deem something valuable and choose it, they call it holy, but whatever they do not want, they consider it not allowed.
-- Rule of St. Benedict 1.6-9
