Weekly quote from the Rule of St. Benedict

Let us get up at last, therefore, while Scripture wakens us and says, "It is the hour now for us to rise from sleep" (Rom 13:11), and with our eyes opened toward the deifying light, let us hear with attuned ears the divine voice daily crying out a word that admonishes us, saying: "Today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts" (Ps 95:8). And again: "Whoever has ears for hearing let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches" (Rev 2:7). And what does He say? "Come, sons, hear me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord" (Ps 34:12). "Run while you have the light" of life, "lest the shadows" of death "encompass you" (Jn 12:35).
