Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

And so, always fearful of the future judgment of the shepherd about the sheep entrusted to him, [the abbot] is led to give careful thought to his own reckoning whenever he thinks about the accounts that others will have to render, and while he offers others correction by his admonitions, he himself is corrected and removed from vices.


-- Rule of Saint Benedict 2:39-40 (this avoids the temptation the abbot [or another leader] can have to focus on the faults of those being led and to lose sight of his own faults; St. Benedict here explains that the abbot should lead in such a way that he always simultaneously has in mind his own faults and need for continued conversion when dealing with the faults of others)
