Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

Do not be proud, nor given to wine (cf. Titus 1:7; 1Tim 3:3), nor very voracious when eating, nor a sleepyhead, nor lazy (cf. Rom 12:11), nor a grumbler, nor a detractor.


-- Rule of Saint Benedict 4.34-40 (from chapter on the tools of good works. A “detractor” is sometimes said to be a person who speaks ill of others, but more precisely the sin of detraction is when you say something negative about another, when there is no reason to do so.)
