Quote of the day, 17 September: Rule of St. Albert

Each one of you is to stay in his own cell or nearby, pondering the Lord’s law day and night and keeping watch at his prayers unless attending to some other duty.

Saint Albert of Jerusalem

Rule of St. Albert
1995 publication, chapter 10

Maneant singuli in cellulis suis, vel iuxta eas, die ac nocte in lege Domini meditantes et in orationibus vigilantes nisi aliis iustis occasionibus occupentur.

  1. Gosh, that takes me back to when I proudly bought my copy of the Rule. I still have it, and the Constitutions. This single paragraph gives me all the instruction I need for a good life. Many thanks.
