"Benedict's Rule seeks balance between work, prayer and rest."

What a glorious contribution to the spiritual life of the Church that above statement is, but sadly, the concept of balance is so misunderstood and so cheaply misappropriated amongst the people who are the Church. We all would do well, no matter what denomination, non-denomination, or permutation of the Christian faith we each inhabit, to take the Rule into account in our daily lives.


And thanks for this post.
