Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict
[Continuing St. Benedict’s description of the four kinds of monks: the fourth kind]
The fourth kind of monks are called gyrovagues. Throughout their life they are guests for three or four days in different regions, in the cells of different monasteries. They are always wandering and never stable. They are slaves to their own wishes and to the enticements of the palate. And in every way they are worse than the sarabaites.
As for the most pitiful conduct of all of them, it is better to be silent than to speak. Therefore, leaving these behind, let us move on to set out an arrangement for the strongest kind, the cenobites.
-- Rule of St. Benedict 1.10-13
