Good morning!

As I start my last 24 or so hours as your guest poster for the week, I’ve just finished the #Vigils office which triggered something to share about the teaching in the Rule of St Benedict, so here’s another daily #thread...
In the #Vigils office, the reading was St. Augustine and it started with the line, “The Beatitudes start with humility...”

#Humility was a big deal to Benedict; and one of the great teaching chapters in the Rule, Chapter 7, is called On Humility.
It is by far the longest chapter in the Rule. In it, Benedict sees the way of humility as a ladder and likens it to the ladder Jacob saw (Genesis 28) “...on which Angels appeared to [Jacob] descending and ascending.” (RSB4:6)
