Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

Whenever important matters need to be handled in the monastery, let the abbot call together the whole community and say himself what the issue is. And having heard the counsel of the brothers, he is to think things over for himself and to do what he has judged more advantageous. Now, we said that all are to be called for counsel because often the Lord reveals what is better to the younger members.

-- Rule of Saint Benedict 3:1-3
