Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

In the first place, ‘love the Lord God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength,’ and, then, ‘your neighbor just as yourself’ (Mt 22:37-39; Mk 12:30-31; Lk 10:27). Then, ‘do not kill, do not commit adultery, do not commit thievery, do not covet’ (Rom 13:9), ‘do not speak false testimony’ (Mt 19:18; Mk 10:19; Lk 18:20), ‘honor all’ human beings (1Pt 2:17), and ‘do not do to another what you do not want done to yourself’ (Tob 4:16; Mt 7:12; Lk 6:31).

-- Rule of Saint Benedict 4.1-9 (beginning of the chapter titled, “What the tools of good works are”)
