Rule of St. Benedict ~ for beginners


"Hearken continually within thine heart, O son, giving attentive ear to the precepts of thy master. Understand with willing mind and effectually fulfil thy holy father’s admonition; that thou mayest return, by the labour of obedience, to Him from Whom, by the idleness of disobedience, thou hadst withdrawn. To this end I now address a word of exhortation to thee, whosoever thou art, who, renouncing thine own will and taking up the bright and all-conquering weapons of obedience, dost enter upon the service of thy true king, Christ the Lord."

St. Benedict starts his Rule off as a welcome to comers to the monastery. 
We are looking forward to welcoming a new Postulant on Monday. 
So lets give the Lord the ear of thine heart, and listen to what is calling us to for the greater glory of His Kingdom.

Guardian Angels

Guardian Angels

May our Guardian Angels always look after us and protect us from the Evil one, and sing us to sleep.

Someone suggested that I should name my Guardian Angel, so that when I need a little extra help (who doesn't) I can call him/her by name.
