HR#10 “Instead of leaning on others, standing on one’s own feet” – The Holy Rule of St. Benedict with Fr. Mauritius Wilde OSB

[poweroress]

Instead of leaning on others, standing on one’s own feet

St.-Benedict-d

CHAPTER LXIX

That in the Monastery No One Presume to Defend Another
Care must be taken that on no occasion one monk try to defend another in the monastery,
or to take his part, even though they be closely related by ties of blood. Let it not be
attempted by the monks in any way; because such conduct may give rise to very grave
scandal. If anyone overstep this rule, let him be severely punished.

Father Mauritius Wilde, OSB, Ph.D., did his philosophical, theological and doctoral studies in Europe. He is the author of several books and directs retreats regularly. He serves as Prior at Sant’Anselmo in Rome.
