October 09 – Reading of the Rule of St. Benedict

February 8, June 9, October 9

Chapter 7: On Humility (Cont.)

The eleventh degree of humility 
is that when a monk speaks
he do so gently and without laughter,
humbly and seriously,
in few and sensible words,
and that he be not noisy in his speech.
It is written,
“A wise man is known by the fewness of his words”(Sextus,
 Enchidirion, 134 or 145).
