Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

‘Deny yourself’ so that Christ is followed. ‘Discipline the body;’ do not cling to enticements; love fasting. Relieve the lot of the poor, ‘cloth the naked, visit the sick,’ bury the dead. Come to the aid of the person in trouble; console the afflicted.

 

-- Rule of Saint Benedict 4.10-19 (from the chapter on the tools of good works)
