Chapter 5: Obedience

June 20, 2016 | The Rule of St Benedict


RB 5:17-19 –  17 If a disciple obeys grudgingly and grumbles, not only aloud but also in her heart, 18 then, even though she carries out the order, her action will not be accepted with favour by God, who sees that she is grumbling in her heart. 19 She will have no reward for service of this kind; on the contrary, she will incur punishment for grumbling, unless she changes for the better and makes amends.
