THE TOOLS FOR GOOD WORKS

Listen readily to holy reading, and devote yourself often to prayer.

Every day with tears and sighs confess your past sin to God in prayer and change from these evils ways in the future.

Do not gratify the promptings of the flesh (Gal. 5:16); hate the urgings of self-will.

Obey the orders of the prioress unreservedly,even if her own conduct - which God forbid - be at odds with what she says.

Remember the teachings of Christ: Do what they say, not what they do (Mt. 23:3).
