Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

Let no person in the monastery be given distinction by the abbot. Let no one be loved by the abbot more than any other, unless he finds a person better in good actions and obedience. A freeborn person is not to be placed before one coming from the condition of slavery, unless there is another cause which is reasonable. Indeed, let the abbot make changes concerning anyone’s rank, if it seems to him that justice dictates as much. But otherwise, they all keep their proper places, because “whether slave or free, we are all one in Christ” (Gal 3:28; Eph 6:8) and under the one Lord we bear the same military duty as servants, for “God is no respecter of persons” (Rom 2:11). With Him we gain distinction only in this way, if we are found better than others in good works and are also found to be humble. Therefore, the abbot should have an equal love for all; let one discipline be administered to all of them according to merits.  


-- Rule of Saint Benedict 2.16-22
