Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict
The second step of humility is when a person, who is in not in love with his own will (propriam voluntatem), is not allured by the prospect of fulfilling his own desires; instead, he imitates in his deeds that utterance of the Lord, who said: ‘I have not come to do my own will, but that of the one who sent me’ (Jn 6:38).
-- Rule of St. Benedict 7.31-32 (from chap. 7 on the 12 steps of humility; “his own will” can also be translated “self-will” [see previous entry for comment on self-will])
