St. Benedict originally intended this text
for use in monasteries. St. Benedict highlights the
importance of peace, prayer, work, sacrifice, humility,
frugality, and obedience. His guidelines are to aid those
in the pursuit of godliness, and he shares how individuals should relate
to each other, authority, and guests. St. Benedict explains the
responsibilities of the Abbott, or community leader, in whose care rests
the welfare of the community's members. The Rule of St. Benedict
provides tangible advice regarding how a community of Christians can
cultivate contented souls that are modest and free from want. This book
contains a thorough set of principles for those who wish to grow in
God's love by communally engaging in Christ-like disciplines.
