Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict
But if [a visiting monk from another monastery] is not such a one who deserves to be thrown out, then, if he petitions to become a fellow member of the flock, not only should he be received, but also he should be encouraged to stay, so that the others may learn from his example -- and this seeing that in every place it is the one Lord who is being served, the one king for whom we do battle.
-- Rule of St. Benedict 61.8-10 (after considering the case of a visiting monk who is a bad influence and deserves to be thrown out, St. Benedict says this about a visiting monk who is a good influence; St. Benedict goes on to say that the abbot should not receive this good visiting monk, unless the abbot of the monastery from which he came agrees to it)
