Your way of acting should be different from the world’s way – Rule of St Benendict

(Excerpt)

Contemplatio et actio- contemplation and action –
means remaining in the presence of God and doing what is recognised as being His will. This leads us to become deeply rooted in God in accordance with the promise of Our Lord Jesus Christ: everyone therefore who listens to these words of mine and carries them out can be compared to a wise man who built his house upon a rock. (Mt7,24). In this way we remain close to God, who loves us throughout the day. The consciousness of this fact causes unobserved by those around us – an absolute silence to descend with increasing frequency in the inner sanctuary of our soul. It cries out louder than any other voice: my Lord and my God! (J 20,28). Lord You know everything – You know that I love You! (J 21,17). Such a relationship with God – is contemplation.
