Of course you don't take them in isolation. There'd be no point is bring up the apparent contradiction and calling it that unless the idea was to not take it in isolation.

You're taking that one line from St. Benedict in isolation. You haven't taken any trouble to grasp what he's teaching in the Rule. You've allowed yourself to be worried and bothered by that one line, which apparently strikes a chord with you, and you've ignored the whole teaching of St. Benedict. If you took the trouble to read more carefully, you wouldn't find yourself constantly rushing into the positing of apparent contradictions.

Don't take the charge of taking that line in isolation in isolation, either. The rest of my post is important, too. Stop reading things that you then immediately put to the enemy's work of undermining your peace. Read more basic things. Get your feet under you. I named three sources. Good stuff. None of them saints, yet, but for all that much easier for a modern person to understand and digest than St. Alphonsus.


As much as my pride will not let me receive this with pleasure,

Thank you for replying.
