Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

If we want to dwell in the tent of His kingdom, then unless we run to it by good actions, we will simply not reach it. But let us with the prophet question the Lord, saying to Him: "Lord, who will dwell in Your tent, or who will rest on Your holy mountain?" (Ps 15:1) After this questioning, brothers, let us hear the Lord answering and showing us the way to this tent, for He speaks of ‘the one who enters without stain and works justice,’ ‘who speaks truth in his heart,’ ‘who had no guile on his tongue,’ ‘who did not do evil to his neighbor,’ ‘who did not consent to an abuse against his neighbor’ (Ps 15:2-3)

    

-- Rule of St. Benedict prol.22-27 [nb: the list of qualities of those who will dwell in God's tent continues for several more lines; see vv. 28-34; these are the qualities of the "new man" which we become through the resurrection of Christ]
