Listen, my child
  
  
Ausculta, o fili, praecepta magistri, et inclina aurem cordis tui, et admonitionem pii patris libenter excipe et efficaciter comple…
 
In primis, ut quicquid agendum inchoas bonum, ab eo perfici instantissima oratione deposcas…
 
Ita enim ei omni tempore de bonis suis in nobis parendum est ...
 
(Regula S.P.N. Benedicti, Prologus)
 
 
Listen, dear child, to the precepts of thy Master, and incline the ear of thine heart; willingly receive and faithfully fulfill the admonition of thy loving Father…
 
In the first place, whatever good work thou beginnest to do, beg of Him with most earnest prayer to perfect…
 
For we must always thus serve Him with the good things He hath given us ...
 
(Rule of our Holy Father Saint Benedict, Prologue)
