Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

We believe that the divine presence is everywhere and ‘that the eyes of the Lord look upon the good and the bad in every place’ (Prov 15:3). Still, we most of all and without any doubt believe this is the case when we are attending to the divine office. Therefore, we should always be mindful of what the prophet said: ‘Serve the Lord in fear’ (Ps 2:11), and again, ‘Chant the psalms wisely’ (Ps 47:8), and, ‘In the sight of the angels, I will chant psalms to you’ (Ps 138:1). Let us then consider how the matter ought to be in the sight of the Godhead and his angels, and thus let us stand to chant the psalms, so that our minds harmonize with our voices.

-- Rule of St. Benedict 19.1-7
