“Incline the ear of your heart.”

St. Benedict penned the words in the 6th century, as a guide to living in a monastic community, and indeed his words are still the foundation of many Catholic religious communities today.

When something so poetic reaches across the centuries to me, I try and pay attention.  I first came across “the rule” in 2004, and have seen it pop up several times since.

I’m listening.
