Jan 13 – Aristotles -neglected- Children

Dom Eamon Fitzgerald, OCSOToday we again interrupted our reading of Aristotle’s Children at the midday meal. This time our September 2016 Visitation Card was read. An account of our Abbot General’s visit to the monasteries of our Order in the eastern United States and Canada followed the reading of the visitation card.


from Rule of St. Benedict: Chapter 38. The Reader for the Week

Reading will always accompany the meals of the brothers.
