Jan 15 - A Busy Day

He delivered me from my strong enemies and from those who hated me; *
for they were too might for me.
Psalm 18:18
Rather they should keep in mind that they have undertaken the care of souls for whom they must give an account...
...let them realize that on judgement day they will surely have to submit a reckoning to God for all their souls -- and indeed for their own as well
Benedict's Rule 2:34, 38 (Chittister Pg 47, 49)
No reflection for Jan 15th, as my work day allowed only time for my reading, not time for reflection and sharing.

A Note To Anyone Reading:

This entry is part of a series that is developing as I read The Rule of Benedict, A Spirituality for the 21st Century, Joan Chittister, Crossroads, 2010. I am offering this both to those at St. George's Episcopal Church, Arlington VA, that may be reading Ms. Chittister's book and to anyone that is interested.

Unless stated otherwise quotes from St. Benedict's Rule from the translation in this same book.
Psalms are from The Book of Common Prayer, The Episcopal Church, 1979 unless otherwise noted.
