While I’m on the Benedict kick…

August 18, 2007

and while I have some time/energy/desire to post here’s a couple more quotes. This time they come from Joan Chittister, a personal hero of mine. From Wisdom Distilled from the Daily:

“Benedictine spirituality asks us to spend our time well and to be careful that our wants are not confused with our needs and to treat the world and everything in it as sacred.” p 70

“Benedictine spirituality requires all of us to go through life taking back one inch of the planet at a time until the Garden of Eden grows green again. The fact is that where those who follow the Rule of Benedict live, the world will become an ordered, cared-for place. Resources, people, products and time become precious.” p 71
