A Mature Docility is Needed to Hear a Divine Source

To be a monk means to be open to the teaching of another.  To be able to hear the other – the other is the abbot, the community, your neighbor, the prior, the novice master and a whole host of other voices.  Of course, the primary voice is the one that comes from a divine source, from the liturgy, prayer, or lectio divina.  A certain mature docility is needed in order to hear it.  Page 99
