Humility 1.3

Sisters / brothers, divine scripture calls to us saying: "Whoever exalts themselves shall be humbled, and whoever humbles themselves shall be exalted (Lk. 14:11; 18:14)." RB 7:1

This call sounds through Chapter 7 as well as the entire Rule of Benedict. In the community scripture can be experienced as an encounter with the divine. The Word of God rests in the center of the community. "Clothed then with faith and the performance of good works, let us set out on this way, with the gospel as our guide, that we may deserve to see the Holy One 'who has called us the eternal presence (I Thes. 2:12)." RB Prologue 21

It is Christ whom we follow, the presenter of the gospel message in word and deed.
