Listen, child of God, to the guidance of your teacher…
…My words are addressed to you especially, whoever you may be, whatever your circumstances, who turn from your pursuit of your own self will and ask to enlist under Christ, who is Lord of all, by following him through taking to yourself that strong and blessed armour of obedience which he made his own on coming into our world.
(from the Prologue to the Rule of St Benedict)
