Chapter 64: Election of the Abbess
28 May 2016 | The Rule of St Benedict
RB 64:9-11, 15 - 9 The abbess must be chaste, temperate and merciful. 10 She should always let mercy triumph over judgment (Jas 2:13) so that she too may win mercy. 11 She must hate faults but love the sisters ... 15 Let her strive to be loved rather than feared.
