Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

The love of progressing toward eternal life impels them. Therefore they grab hold of the narrow way, of which the Lord says, ‘Narrow is the way that leads to life’ (Mt 7:14).


-- Rule of St. Benedict 5.10-11 (St. Benedict is speaking in particular about monks who are willing to let go of their selfish wishes and to defer to another’s decisions)
