Chapter 68: If a Sister Is Commanded to Do Impossible Things

If it happens 
that difficult or impossible tasks are laid on a sister,
 
let her nevertheless receive the order of the one in authority
 
with all meekness and obedience.
 
But if she sees that the weight of the burden
 
altogether exceeds the limit of her strength,
 
let her submit the reasons for her inability
 
to the one who is over her
 
in a quiet way and at an opportune time,
 
without pride, resistance, or contradiction.
 
And if after these representations
 
the Superior still persists in her decision and command,
let the subject know that this is for her good,
 
and let her obey out of love,
 
trusting in the help of God.
