Instead of leaning on others, standing on one’s own feet
From the Holy Rule of St. Benedict:
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.

Excellent reflection .Applicable to one fulfillment of our given own mission. Standing on our own, finding and detaching from our emotional co-depemdencies. This self reliance of accounting for our own choices, the pillars of virtues we chose for our life, the actions and how our example will impact those around us, our families and community.
