Thoughts for Reflection from Benedictine & Monastic Authors

Day by Day

Come and See The Monastic Way for Today

Fulfilling the Law of Christ

The way we live together should be a witness to all that we are aware of living in the House of God.  There is no class distinction among us.  We are “to be the first to show respect to the other” (Rule of St Benedict 72:4), to be obedient to one another, and share everything in common.  All this is based on our awareness of living in the presence of God, living in the House of God.  We all know this awareness does not come easily.  It is not natural for us to give in to the other.  It is not natural for us to put others first.  Page 37
