Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict
It is clear that there are four kinds of monks. The first is that of the cenobites – this is the kind that belongs to a monastery, doing battle under a rule as well as an abbot.
After this, the second kind is that of anchorites, that is, hermits. Their way is not marked by the newcomer’s fervor, but instead they have gone through a long period of testing in the monastery. Having now become skilled through the support of many, they have learned to fight against the devil. And well built up, they go from the frontline with their brothers to the single combat of the desert. Now secure without the encouragement of another, they are sufficient, with God’s help, to fight bare handed against the vices and thoughts of the flesh.
-- Rule of St. Benedict 1.1-5 (nb: descriptions of the third and fourth kinds of monks will follow in the next two weeks)
