Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

‘Do not repay evil for evil’ (1Th 5:15; 1Pt 3:9). Do not cause injury, but even bear the ones done to you patiently. ‘Love your enemies’ (Mt 5:44; Lk 6:27). Do not return a curse to those who curse you, but rather bless them. ‘Put up with persecution for the sake of justice’ (cf. Mt 5:10).


-- Rule of Saint Benedict 4.29-33 (from chapter on the tools of good works)
