Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

Let us do what the prophet said: I declared, ‘Let me keep guard over my ways, so that I may not do wrong with my tongue.’ I put a guard over my mouth. I became silent and was humbled, and kept quiet about good things (Ps 39:2-3). Here the prophet shows that if at times one should keep silent from good statements for the sake of silence, then all the more one should refrain from bad words because of the penalty of sin.


Rule of Saint Benedict 6.1-2
