- "Let no one follow what he considers useful for himself, but rather what benefits another."
Rule of St. Benedict, Chapter 72
- "By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be my disciples."
"Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ".
In order that he may be careful about his wrongful thoughts, therefore,
let the faithful brother say constantly in his heart,
"Then shall I be spotless before Him, if I have kept myself from my iniquity" (Ps. 17:24).
