Why are the chapters out of order?
The genius of this blog is that it is the product of a meditating community reflecting together on the Rule of St. Benedict. We meet to reflect and discuss every weekday morning.
We use a method for reflection on the Rule which has us reading through it three times over the course of a year. This method includes weekends.
Because we do not meet as a community on weekends to discuss the Rule, we have no communal reflections to post on this blog for the chapters that fall on weekends.
However, because we cycle three times through the Rule per year we hope to complete communal reflections on all 73 of the Rule’s chapters over the course of the year.
As reflections continue to be posted they will appear in order in the categories drop-down menu. This menu, called ‘Chapters in Order’, is located on the right hand side of the blog below the WCCM logo. Please go to this menu if you wish to read the chapters in order.
