Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

Heed, o son, the precepts of the teacher and incline the ear of your heart; both willingly accept and effectively fulfill the admonition of a devoted father, so that you may return through the labor of obedience to Him from whom you withdrew through the sloth of disobedience.


-- Rule of Saint Benedict Prologue, 1-2
