Chapter 51: On Brethren Who Go Not Very Far Away

A Brother who is sent out on some business 
and is expected to return to the monastery that same day
 
shall not presume to eat while he is out,
even if he is urgently requested to do so
 
by any person whomsoever,
unless he has permission from his Abbot.
And if he acts otherwise, let him be excommunicated.
