Rule of Benedict Novice Class # 1 - 1990s



Auto-Generated Transcript

in the of mass with shepherds night into a ninety three and the relevant addicted to chapter sixty four and i remembered this part of the rule is mostly benedict
it doesn't correspond in a number and to the succession of the masters turkish man and a lot of the material comfort like this is what they call his second directory for the abbot
chapter sixty four
when choosing an hour but the guiding principle should always visit a man placed office be the one selected either by the whole community acting unanimously and if you gotta buy some part of the community no matter how small which possesses sounds and judgment know how do you work out without a fistfight
we three prisoners does that sound judgment so we're going to have the decision
and then later on as more possible
thank you
later on as more possibility for about computing violence
goodness of life and was teaching the criteria for another come back again and again my god to visit the whole community should conspire to elect a man who goes along with the tony boys of it does than a bishop constantin at a local habits are christians you can see them coming at night with clubs and tortures like those frankenstein her vision in the room and the local
pump with that
there's a lot of scope for the for drama and said a worthy stewart and charge of god's house
and then they after this this is this first part of the second part is that the abbott has to work
as to observe these names and beware of these other things some of the things that same invented a potential a lot of practical wisdom
some of them seem more or less of it is a conventional saying that her person
a lot of it comes from st augustine and in in here years you see this tempering of justice and mercy the quality of blood which has always coming to the surface and august and
eight false above the brothers
use and avoid extremes otherwise by rubbing duvall to remove the rescue may break the vessel and then there's a similar think down below where he should be discerning and moderate bearing in mind the discretion of all the jacob said if i drive my fox to her their well-done a single day so there's a lot of latin a lot of sense of to scratch
you here and a slanted sense because it means moderation it means not imposing too much not asking too much whereas discretion discernment would ordinarily be on either side neither be too harsh not to it but benedict and planning on the side of avoiding harshness here and started
oh boy
what would you say gentleness and then there's a lot and hear about the abbot's own weakness and failings but on it just very preoccupied with it
and the conclusion or near conclusion
i'm so arrange everything is a strong have something to yearn for the week putting to run from such marvelous and sounds very much like better although it makes some may have to date in am actually the fridge
and under rule
the rule is to be the final criterion
many comments or questions about to remember that roman procedure was traditionally an election than between her was it
for a bye bye birdie they replaced them with the pope appointing his own too expensive
but you know that the current records right now have a little between the tourism because the pope of the cardinals and then the cardinals elected pope so much an indirect but some of those cardinals are already of course residuals from before the present book content so there's a kind of a delay factor for another the self
appointing a offered
rather than certainly certainly not have an election from the base isn't because it even and the cardinals are you know about ninety five percent bishops of course there's not one hundred percent of the bishops are appointed by the average age so it's it's completely self contained that's rather than being an election from say from the people wrong or from
the the base of the churches all
the monarchical principle is very strong enough for both on the roman catholic church and and the i better
so it's striking to see her that election by the brethren make quantity and after all that changed to bidding already actually a possible doesn't have a day
they did elect they how did they choose appliance
i'm not
by large finally didn't do but didn't think community but point the to clinical community choose the to but there to choose between by lot to think that any questions the apostles who nominated to and then the apostles nominated them
and then they chose them by law there wasn't really there wasn't really a vote
don't you find that another place because you'll find a choice by the community and other places it changed me
and sometimes i think by probably prayer fasting and then maybe some kind of prophetic intuition something like got on somebody's part and on the community would accept it well i'm convinced to the one that when the community yeah
jurist community schools as a reputation for being mark
james the elven language now change
james comey these other pillars of they had their
okay that's chapter sixty four and the election of the other hand the second directory for the palace take over chapter three
summoning the brothers for council
it's interesting to compare how did a cashier and them over the last year
a robot masters not a separate chapter it's part of the chapter on the have the ending of haram to

st benedict the next couple of changes he accents the authority of the abbot even more than
now the master days
mark you want to read the first one paragraph that is checked with be
as often as it is a me to important is to be done in the monastery the added shall call the whole community together and himself explain what the business is and after hearing the advice of the brothers let him pondered and follow what he judges the way
wiser course
the reason why we have said all should be called for council is that the lord pocket reveals what is better to
the younger
the brothers for their work or to express their opinions with all humility
can not presume to defend their own views obstinately the decision is rather the average chewing
so that when he has determined what is more prudent i'm a obeyed nevertheless just as it is proper for disciples to obey their master so is it so it is becoming for the master on his part to so everything
where the foresight and fairness neck you know who i points out that the innovative because is defined by a community abbott and rule he ditched by those things and ten this chapter that you should interaction among the three of was particularly between you ever and the community but then they returned to the rule and the second half with a chair
it's a little more change other more up for grabs and the role of the masters to how their decision actually going to be made good benedick makes it very clear that he ever makes the decision now though it's what you have is not a consultant not a deliberative a chapter related a consultative chip
and the command constitutions this is than chapter two part five and page thirteen to sixteen
and there what you find is a very carefully structured
legislation as exactly what has to be brought to the chapter and other things may get back to the church with children and determines dictate what shall we brought to the chapter
and what should we voted on deliberately and what shall be voted on consultative them as a third kind of old also in which the abbot doesn't have any go
but the deliberative vote means that the majority decides an occasional yeah maybe a two-thirds majority isn't i believe in accepting somebody for osama profession the consultative vote means that the avid sounds out to community which he made your by a written vote or i do buy a show of hands or another way and then he himself next to decision
non canon law has structure these things are a lot of as detail on her comes from the canon law presidents about acquiring are showing alienated they say property significant property canon law says the community has to decide so them a lot of the deliberative votes come from the canon law
now in also the watch for accepting members openly where it's delivered to i think that's determined largely by kind of
whereas in st benedict's legislation you don't have it into the route to vote the robbins hot tomato
but the avid between frank
final decision
this seems enormously complicated when you look at every one of these was studied disgusted by over every one of these letters for instance in number fifty six
as to worship what kind of both it should have how the condition despite about them and their carefully structured so for instance the entrance to the ambition and then they'd simple professional solemn profession has been considered together so that the votes followed properly although you may not always be convinced to them
for instance admission to temporary confessions are conservative voters to decorate that and then of course promotional ceremony has to be delivered the road i think it's package
so further i was sure recovering cemetery
but the church law itself as she has put it all that complexity of structure and the church law has made it more democratic has demanded a wider consultation and wider voice of the base whereas the relevant it it could not
rose the prime general however i'm saying so yes it does so that's one of the few instances in which that the consented the prior general is required
which normally is routine okay unless there's some big question if there were a chocolate divided community on a certain person a certain personal katie front on the sound provision of a certain person than the prior general would know about that or should be informed on that you should study the matter and he should consider it seriously before giving us ca
as to whether a simple majority might go bad news in this kitchen not my except somebody who is really going to be a problem
by a large however the not a pro generals consented to achieve the bridge
cutting have any other instances i think a bajur property things things concerning the lot of money the prior generals or no foundation certainly something major like that his consent is needed and sometimes it specifies that not only the consent of the prior generally but of his counsel so he has done a majority of his council
order to do it
one thing notice abandoning introduces on a local level is this domestic council which is in the following part it's one number one gets number sixty two on page sixteen had covered the whole domestic council thing so you have three levels function and right now and from the time of vanity
you have the base that is all of the solemnly professed members in the community
now remember that better next time that would be a larger proportion that community wouldn't because why you had only way you're in division and then your major minor profession of them you didn't have decorate profession so wouldn't have a whole exactly in union
everybody had been together for your in the vision and been accepted would be a solid member
so the formation who would be smaller and marginal people so you've got the base which is the solemnly first members voting members then you've got to domestic council and the commandments legislation says how you choose a domestic council to members are elected by the community as a base private friedman i'm used to be
more fluid selena
the break of packet ferries of
and then finally we've got the the island for the prior and of course the prior in one of our communities is an avid for all practical purposes okay he's got the same power and the same rank in canon law has an amateur it's only the commanders have avoided the title and some of the solemn
dropping from matter for historic variables turkey

so then better i returned to the rule here and in every instance only to follow the teachings of the room orange a eventually did it
the monastery in order to follow his own hard to diagnose national monument presume to contend with and defiantly are outside the monastery it looks like there's a textual gap there maybe it said provisionally contend with the data of climate either inside or outside the monetary
hey burst were it less important business at the monastery be transacted he should play counter with a uniform
you might expect that the more important than would be returned to the this council and the hell is supposed to provide for people with know so that indicated year a greater confidence in the holy spirit that can to the community then in the wouldn't be able to the other someone
the america that lot more perfect one with you very in the middle of all honesty it's like a whole the point

the idea

yeah right away or the traditional on time i that be offered to find in the morning if you don't have time to have a good comment on the fact of the will
for appointment and cut up a little something the great work he cannot get a bit of flexibility we can work
and if they forget one thing that it
have you had the other the driver detonated for a couple that the point that you prevent the secondary april
the great commandment ah another kind of moment and then he doesn't not to be creepy
and that they don't do that much with the women actively
maybe that's because the to that that you cannot kill your son to have gotten anything like right
hundred the right place i thought i thought i would effectively that grey brick right
now the other way
explain that the night and terms with the masses but an actual can be can find it in the world will contend with them
but if you look a an active kind of the power introductory course about that the new car and he want very much the ground and activism in life and what married his life because life is that i have the ability to be in to come from god and want to gambling where the crown
with providing a good field and pulled away from it you probably not the flavor the federal agent it would have a feel
what is the beginning of time
well that was kind of your god's word
at the time
many gonna for one with another are a lot of a good you might not interchangeable
he cried
he could
what can go to the read an attractive and us
christopher you want to read that the first paragraph or you could start with your first mine the first person goes refresh
christopher not the car which will tell how hatch your soul and strength and left the packers yourself then you are not to kill
joshua your enough to steal cars
you're not a regions
you must honor everybody's and you never do to from our what you do not watch casio shop now that seems a completely new testament material doesn't have a very little alteration whereas the next question begins to become more monastic begins to become more specialized read talks about the annunciation
like do i had an extraordinary the references new testament santos is called colleagues estimates young
richie was
hmm she suddenly the after the first to command majority in shade attentional definition of children that brought together in the new testament have deliberately by jesus a change it and a story of a lawyer and not just
how should share my eyes but few and night return
i'm here the first book from the first part yeah the love of guy
it's extraordinary a good example however they point out for instance the commandments the ones that are repeated here are the ones that are repeated in the new testament hunting by for because he skipped some right
it's the ones that have to deal mostly with your relation to reserve your brother's relation to hear your shallows that are quoted him not every one of the recollect
st benedict has made a change from the master first same as you must honor your father and mother just as it is and the decalogue great saint benedict as you must hire everyone and and vulgar ways opinion is that the reason as he didn't want to seem to suggest your encouraged ties with the family
which she got to break off when it came into the monastery

is there any significance and i know that from an understatement this is very gerais extension cord
my david your as yes it is now but sword
give your
i can't put a by and other black encourage like amari know which are no coincidence carried out here is a now but we don't have a herb for characteristics arena
ah i think i think it means love in a warm
for way which does not distinguish for instance between arrows and a guppy between unselfish and altruistic love and a more self centered or know what kind of love it doesn't make distinctions like that
i believe i believe that word is distinguished by by warmth and by a pharmacist of love okay
yeah just murmuring my collection is a the bills related to our words of delight in all right so it's the kind of love that resonates with much joy and delight in human person to irrepressible are now has applications now it doesn't at all i'm quite sure of that
it doesn't if i doesn't go as far that in that direction is that is the now carry distance
but i'm far from a specialist to that specially medieval them he doesn't give any footnote in the
the nineteen a huge help tizzy on chequered
but remember that delicacy on a in a prologue withdrawn run with the unspeakable delight and it's a delight and and illiterate delight a lovey are closely associated and that were already in a row above
and we'd have to see what version of the bible that came from them which translation was which latin translation

whenever you want to read the next question in starting to get out yourself your to follow christ does it bring your by you have happened to yourself i'm not asking you must relieve a lot of the floor codename visited say and bury the dead go without
travel can solve the site
now there's a relation here between the renunciation and the generosity isn't there between and remember the
the triad of basic basic good works prayer almsgiving confessing when the almsgiving the fasting are related in a kind of your code dialectical or a symmetrical of way
st benedict is emitted a couple of here and see if i can find which they are
visit zig that and healthy afflicted console assigned to make loans and to give to the needy as a medic cut those out from the masters list and there isn't much against the instability he wants to eliminate things that don't smack and up with the monastic the team
second so the monk has no business getting launched as a know actually giving on his own individually personally to the to the new that's something that the the homs giver of the community the community itself with him
you he doesn't soften and just by go to help the travel
material that isn't one
and a chinese children area
so troubled their means somebody that's undergoing external affliction likely somebody that
the turning in a visible external way of thing
it could be an inflexion a i think
and it would have the same stage
and these are the brigham the acts of corporal accent nice view
david you want to read the next question
your way that you should be different from the world's bag
the crassness come before all else you are not to act in anger as a grouch radio how will the state
never give a hollow painting piece of cheddar away when someone needs to up by yourself to download his boss and state the truth asked this is almost entirely in the role of master
then you'd see the relationship between twenty and twenty one very easily and then a shift to a relationship to your fellows
for the next month and the love of christ most countries where are all else remember that comes up in several places in the rule it's basic principle for
st benedict and a conference and cyprian him who loved her expression prefer nothing to the love of christ what it is here in the latin his knee he'll have more a crusty bread array
which is stronger than the love of christ much company for else because it's more personal has been
put nothing before the love of christ rather than a love of christ must come before our which it's like the abstracts to him
this concern was a brotherly relationship might seem to belong to benedict put it's almost aren't already in the passion
and it goes on in the next to a question do not repay one bad turn with another
do not injure anyone but air injured berenger is patient sounds a lot like the sayings of the desert fathers the stories of the desert fathers they have integrity love your enemies if both the people curse you do not crush them back the less than instead and or persecution for the sake of justice now lot of this is almost
the soul of early monasticism it seems to me especially when the desert fathers were there are always having these stories about somebody who was abused by somebody else and doesn't respond in probably remember members of those tours what would you call it it almost boils down to something like nonviolence but but an interior just plunged well at the heart
but here is lives they got to talk about external things of course or that behavior
but we'd call it today we call it is current nonviolent screaming
and in the new testament it would be called patriots you a hint of is landlord with the patients patients of course and the latin and classical language doesn't mean patient but patients beach for our patients for us would like waiting expectation it's like waiting for the flight of the bus or something like that
whereas for them it it was in its root of cause it means to suffer it needs to undergo a which is a much stronger and an adjustment is full of that isn't it that is the the letters of the apostles for instance are all about standing firm as you undergo things and stand on the spirit of christ and undergo what you must suffer because they
he really among god's chosen ones
patio is the is covered for to suffer perchance and and to suffer much as to awaits him and that goes with vaccine and paasio the passion of christ now that's latin for to puts the greek
passaic isn't a pissing so it's the same rooms a passing and paseo and patio while of that potential to push through the great to the rank
there's another way cooper monet no one in the the greek tradition of the of the desert part of the time the day ochoa another way for patients
okay march one to be the next post and starting in two thousand and nine to thirty three
do not reverse form bad turn with another
who do not injure anyone and did we do this when now reduced to damage because make because from thirty fourth thru and thru for it because you're most nappies pro nor be given to warm refrain from too much eating or sleeping through for laziness
as do not grow or speak ill of others
there's a kind of affinity between those but some of them stick out like that must not be proud
and then thirty nine would seem to belong with those ones about about my relationship

nice you have open got alone if you notice something good on yourself competitive guy that he has been be certain that he evil you come in the village around ago to acknowledge the two a masters masters
here comes at issue with the no plagiarism or not of course
and this is one of the the rule of benedict strong expressions of grace

hell is that's a place once you open god is in the master with benedict is at it alone
the master has won once he's any good at oneself to be aware that is the work of god not of oneself management the same thing to regard evil as ones on doing to ascribe it to oneself into the devil
chairman you just mentioned to you
to one one's desires to be fulfilled by god to hope for one system it's not from the work of one's hands are gone but rather from got now benedict is purged does to from the master and to wago i will say well they smack too much of a kind of apportioning between gotten herself as a part came from
oh and parking from her side by side and what they call semi-private human to want one's desires to be fulfilled going by god as if the desires game for you in new and the would would commend and fulfilling that would seem perfectly innocent to us but at that time it could sound like sending religion
that your first impulse came from you and then given that good and postcard response by giving in the grace to to do what you want to do
so a medic pushes it in a more an absolute direction absolute duration of grace relying on grace and therefore the direction of st augustine
christian for you want to read the next section was tournament forty four
live in fear of judgement time and have a very horror of health game for everlasting life visually design
day by day remind yourself that you're going to try out why i keep careful watch ever what you do away with guns game is upon you wherever you may be
as soon as month with thoughts come to your heart dashing against christ and disclosed to a spiritual com
guard your lips from handful of deceptive speech our preferred model right hand and speech and speak no flourish chatter nothing just to provide latin do not love and moderate or boisterous often
so there's a broad range here but the first ones obviously a very much connected there about the last thing a judgment day hell heaven
and dead
the one phrase there is quite important to latin his fortune continuing antioch lotion spectrum a beret have the sort of of death before you arrive every day
we're simply to help desk before your eyes every day for letters more concrete in the english translation
remind yourself that you're gonna die says if you had a vision of where your right
and therefore our by hour keep careful watch overall your do that reflects back to the prologue business
the sun is wrong for search committee ohio dash and against christ st benedict has added to the master and disclose them to your spiritual father
dinnerware where that notion of dashing them against cries punishment
when that charming snap and not babbling
does the master have dash them against the rock reached
no to shatter i'm thursday was about to become gentleman from it's about dashing the children of babel and against the rock
that's one of those spiritual
applications of the country unacceptable bunch with a shout
and then they hear maxim's of speech and left which reflect
the degrees of humility and chapter seven to points out that a lot of the things in here our preparations for what you're going to find a chapter seven which specializes on humility and on the grudge of it comes back to the business of speech and left her
next guy sounds terrible judge and standing much oh yeah yeah
now that's the sense
at the imminence of judgment is everywhere
it's hard to know how do not an interpretive because if we were living among the people at that time
we might be able to understand it might fit into context and the way the people words with a consciousness was maybe a vigor of consciousness in a natural natural joy and spontaneity and sign which would make those things not so they wouldn't color the image of they wouldn't twisted out of shape as much as they do for us
joseph our full image of god can be distorted by those things maybe it wasn't there with them maybe they had a naturally more healthy imaging
no no

when he only want to read the next little questionnaires can listen readily to only reading about yourself off to prayer every day with tears in size as your past sins to god prayer and change from these evil ways in the future not the sequence reading lecture and image beijing good scripture
prayer compunction and then corrections has very much i chapter forty nine and lamp and with those actions were lumped together as a the things to give more energy to during one
debbie want to read and execute group you're showing a fifty nine john read like countries of the flesh a urgings of self will
the atoms and even is on that which god bit the announcement what sets and then reputation do what they say not for to
now st benedict has added that javits the abbott and elbow and need
in the side of the habit that's not an ass to simply says to be obedient to the admonition to the other

do not aspire to be called only before you really hard but first be wholly that you make more trilogy culture that's more subtle than it may sound that cause much at times we don't so much what really to be something as we want to
be able to think of ourselves as being something we want the image we don't want to act in reality we do about with images images of ourselves self-image ideal self images and on
live by god's commandment every day my goodness that whole thing as about ten treasure chest he it's interesting there that chested he is not just snap judgment which record continents with temperature which everyone is the one which is more or less a neutral but it needs to be a passion or some kind it
needs to be cherished needs to be something of the heart of positive disposition of the heart
harbor neither hatred no jealousy of anyone into nothing out of mb do not love quarreling the similar thinking you back off to one degree deeper than quarreling itself to not love court do not have a spirit which is which is quarrelsome and which moves towards quarrel takes a deeper into the heart show
on arrogance respect the elders and lovely young
i'm here we're coming into st benedict's favorite area of relations between the brethren now want to see what what he's changed him
yeah he's added a couple of things which are quite important pray for your enemies out of love of christ that's been and said to be one of them all your products strongest and most difficult practices and spiritual life is to pray for my genovese
because it's going straight against something that's like heading straight into the and to the opposition into the resistance and it has a special power from booking the holy spirit
if you have a dispute with someone make peace with them before the sun goes down take a look at the master same thing about being wholly before one as much to be called slow
fulfill god's precepts daily by one's deeds and stronger it has has more reason for existing their than the way we have the
st benedict's nine translated a it in one
knox the same i think an unabridged up today factors go to the a dimple pattern perry
see that the emphasis has been launched in english conservation because it doesn't mention data doesn't mean it doesn't put the underlying life under my name execution of the current
hate no i'm not to be jealous not to do anything out of envy not to love strike
he reconciled to an for the setting the sun so benedict has put in
two things there
respect the elders and love the young pray for your enemies out of love for christ
does are strong and additions take
now you can reflect on at and say well why would a good towson probably because of the opposite inclination both in the young and in new york the inclination for the young to dismiss or write off sale okay as being perhaps not but they should be as as not being the models and
wanting or another or as being insignificant are unproductive pick something like that and for the old to have kind of feelings towards the gun
you just say resent them war
like kind of stingy small hearted niggling displeasure which you see sometimes and and other people to was younger
coming part out partly out of some kind of jealousy or envy
like of vitality and not wishing others to ever vitality and grace which they themselves time
how that dumb recipient differ from where he says are everyone earlier chapter is
it's just nice to from this is credible repetition threat as other residents to go over the place and retraces of try and check them
if you're looking for would you call it structural elegance or literary elegance and it really hasn't really been any country really forces you to bail out whereas original body like a bagger of average that's pure joy have one nice little philosophical maximum power at a time
he's building this crystal gas from the skies were not panic
hmm i wonder if we weren't written are putting title
so was going to write something to be more careful yeah i think so yeah think so so much like the smarter than the conferences on benteke games something wrong
or series profits and get something to be good and sounds like something that was written down as of hours this know it can be good me i've never had that suggested that it could well be it was the center jacket fits it's frustrating to think of it that way because we like to sneak of is something that was written it
stolen some my was carefully pondered and because that's the gravity with which it's always been read you know for a thousand years
and then to think of it being dictated a certain margin of error and a certain carelessness or certain in a free play and unused for years as a someone defectively transcribe the argument is frustrated tourism that is to think of that dictated
thing not as if he ever didn't even read it afterwards and corrected in are tied it up and wanting to would observe that for the rest of eternity i it also makes sense in terms of this connection to go to the real monster is that has been dictated it was well versed in her over massively our up your necessarily bad
it was stating from memory and many residences
in some places that could certainly big them deal
i'm must be very little place is trip composition of them could be
how could be an authentic was trying to be concise he had ordinary politicians and oh massive
using drugs a j
as have to check that he would
if and some places like white talk about not gratify your context of question on place and not fasting him man
and of everything when i was sleeping and our clients it's almost as if he had an obligatory number of authorities that he had to go you know it's on so said this and we're going to put that in there is very important and chances are desperate for tottenham we can can take either one out both the police do you have put in southwest
it's like having these rabbis and everything else can we have to be concerned that
never to despair of god and the master and finally never to lose hope in god's mercy and benedict's rule there's a a specialization and there's a modality there which according to vogue way this to the beginning of this chapter where to matter and of loving the board and here it's a matter of trust
at the lower life for us
at any rate it does it does what would you got give an effective color to the last maximum to their best prescription never to despair of god's mercy because immediately it echoes with those parables of mercy like luke's gospel
the prodigal son and on so it is it is a just putting one word in there has a consoling resonance to console effect
softens our whoa sounds of that of that
that's right okay so that's right and you find a company there's that judge them but then benedictus she is more merciful god and when it goes around and is catching people before they hit the ground cottage is sheltering your ear shepherding very gentle twelve different image you get any actual texture of the role
these then are the tools of the spiritual crap now here we have a great abridgement of a master for one thing you've got three more chapters in the master devoted to these other lists and things but secondly the master has a description of paradise in which is quite nice
it is done that before the same i remember the introductory for to the rope
and i get back to r rated three
okay this art which is issued not the instruments but they are issued from the will of god and completed in return it without fault has a lot of the day of judgment will be recompensed for this reward
to dwell forever in a land seven times more brilliant than silver whose heaven they bot will be why you chose sober
who's heavenly what will be alone and not by the light of this sun moon or of the started by the eternal majesty of god himself number revelation that need know lab or light because god and the lamb or like there's no template has no like because god as them to put in a light in this land of splendor their rivers of honey and milk wine and oil flowing forever
on their backs various trees bear a variety of fruits twelve times a year cultivated not by man that by the divine magic
they don't give divide by satisfy the appetite for food but after the very sight of them has spent the eyes of the saints each one received into his mouth tastes which better person while of the sense here that be but near on the banks of these rivers replaced musical instruments constantly playing hymns which has something to praise of the gig by the holy angels and archangels
raising their voices in the innocent
hearing the sweetness of these voices so delights the saints that their heart set to twittering with tremendous joy in you can always questioned the english translation by the harmonious malady wants to exult more and more that goes on
sorry i'm a christian so that goal is not always been regarded as the most precious metal know so that was gone one point
depends on the abundance where you find events for good work because i'm account number of the reasons but because usually silver as much more abundant goal and and find them together and maybe a lot of concern to the goal but that's not true everywhere you go reflects true color go i mean silver reflects her you mean reflecting second marriage is made
so okay gotcha were gold if a yellow tinge to it any used to be a thought of it stated that's interesting been testing
oh those meant the medals are very interesting husband ticket models because they had all kinds of river residences in the unconscious which on archetype of residents even the planet and sun moon and so on this nature while seem to be tied together in that kind of symbolic mind it's considering to diamonds
ah that
the word called whatever referred to in the edge will not be quiet when it came down to at seven am i used to recall them in school
no it it's a possibility of having based on someone i can be transparent apple pit you have the the that problem with the precious stones like a revelation twenty one twenty two their own next step her words are the same because the actual stone indicators which to be something out and very precious stones or in
negated by word which means of semi precious stone now that can now another thing is that metallurgy of those times that they didn't separate out outright well i imagine you may often have had sober the goal attempt to atlanta with a little gold or copper or something like that
so they may have been some confusion actually and everything but they had
certainly the king of assyria was very careful about is called and desert
and then the walls engage the streets squares of the city of jerusalem and everything rings out with alleluia the chemical joy
whereas benedict ruthlessly cut out on a hack
and as devote way says he gives you simply this apathetic what the i have not seen know the year heard god is prepared for those without them it's almost as if he's impatient with that sensual imagine i took description of but the master right he says bologna that's the time have something you can imagine forget it a little like paul does in first corinthians fifteen
the next feedback so there's something to be said for both approaches me masters a said that's right into that but
yeah the master william s and addicted to
it's the of fabric and apathetic that's for sure
and the workshop where we are to twelve inch blade all these tests is the closure of them on experience to ability in the community the end of the world's stability which is important for benedict and not get some point for the master remembered for benedick stability is road definitive of the kind of monastic like these legislating for
well we seem to have finished a chapter four
and next time i'm gonna check your five obedience
why should read a little one of the list so
the masters was devices and
the basis which we are to guard against your personal pride and disobedience talkative now that that seems a strange order doesn't it but then you remember that the three grade plastic virtues or what humility
obedience and silence right us eternity and that to three are connected because it's it's tess eternity at silent which enables you to hear the habit by to hear the voice for the everton and that's immediately obedience business obedience just is tied to humility because in humility like the inside of of obedience
and them besides obedience is among the the first steps of menotti falsehood average cupidity jealousy and iniquity hatred and a lot of these are borrowed it from a wish to paul and his letters
injustice as scripture laziness theft detraction before me liberty and purity out of speech excessive wear guffawing laughter and humming
ha ha as such a that ceo and about an african church shooting and according to the vulgar way it it may be the same as shunt on month so in french shantung bob c o j m t o and any now anyway humming as our translators version
covetousness to ambition and instability
so i came next time obedience and now the next three chapters are tightly tied together chapter five on obedience chapter six hundred restraint of speech or touch and does a us going through the phonetic touchy two meters and then chapters her
humility as we just know going into the father into the smaller to the whole experience was watching working
shopping or without him
i are we going to get to go with swift and five
you think there's anything on that
because i don't think so after only a generator country but know i they try to not be of the get to
