DE IIS, QUI AD OPUS DEI, VEL AD MENSAM TARDE OCCURRUNT.

22 Julii

22 Mar. AD horam Divini Officii, mox ut auditum 21 Nov. fuerit signum, relictis omnibus, quælibet fuerint in manibus, summa cum festinatione curratur; cum gravitate tamen, ut non scurrilitas inveniat fomitem. Ergo nihil Operi Dei præponatur. Quod si quis ad Nocturnas Vigilias post Gloriam Psalmi nonagesimi quarti (quem propter hoc omnino protrahendo et morose volumus dici) occurrerit, non stet in ordine suo in Choro, sed ultimus omnium stet, aut in loco quem talibus negligentibus seorsum constituerit Abbas, ut videatur ab ipso, vel ab omnibus, usque dum completo Opere Dei, publica satisfactione pœniteat.

Ideo autem eos in ultimo aut seorsum judi

OF THOSE WHO COME LATE TO THE WORK OF GOD OR TO TABLE.

As soon as the signal for Divine Office shall be heard, each one, laying aside whatever occupation he may happen to be engaged in, shall hasten to the Oratory with all speed, and yet with gravity, lest an occasion be given for light behaviour. Let nothing, therefore, be preferred to the Work of God. If any one shall come to Matins after the "Gloria" of the ninety-fourth Psalm, which we would have said slowly and leisurely for this very purpose, let him not stand in his order in the choir, but last of all, or in a place which the Abbot shall have set apart for such negligent people; that he may be seen by him and by all the rest, till the Work of God be

cavimus debere stare, ut visi ab omnibus, vel pro ipsa verecundia sua emendentur. Nam si foras Oratorium remaneant, erit forte talis qui se aut recollocet et dormiat, aut certe sedeat foris, vel fabulis vacet, et detur occasio maligno; sed ingrediatur intro, ut nec totum perdat, et de reliquo emendetur. Diurnis autem Horis, qui ad Opus Dei post Versum et Gloriam primi Psalmi qui post Versum dicitur, occurrerit, lege qua supradiximus, in ultimo stet loco: nec præsumat sociari Choro psallentium usque ad satisfactionem, nisi forte Abbas licentiam dederit permissione sua; ita tamen, ut satisfaciat reus ex hoc.

23 Mar. 23 Julii

Ad mensam autem qui ante versum 22 Nov. non occurrerit, ut simul omnes dicant versum et orent, et sub uno simul omnes accedant ad mensam; qui per negligentiam suam aut vitium non occurrerit, usque ad secundam vicem pro hoc corripiatur: si denuo non emendaverit, non permittatur ad mensæ communis participationem, sed sequestratus a consortio omnium reficiat solus, sublata ei portione sua vini, usque ad satisfactionem et emendationem. Similiter autem patiatur, qui ad illum Versum non fuerit præsens, qui post cibum dicitur. Nec quisquam præsumat ante

ended, and thus do penance and make public satisfaction.

We have judged it fitting they should stand in the last place, or apart, for this reason; that being seen by all, they may for very shame's sake amend. For if they remain outside the Oratory, some one will perchance either return to his cell and sleep, or at least sit without, and, abandoning himself to idle talk, give an occasion to the evil one. Let him therefore enter in, that he may not lose all, and may be amended for the time to come. In the day Hours, let him that shall come to the Work of God, after the verse* and "Gloria" of the first Psalm, stand last, as directed above, and not presume to join himself to the choir of singers until he has made satisfaction, unless the Abbot shall, by his permission, give him leave; on condition, however, that he afterwards make amends for his fault.

He that cometh not to table before the verse,† so that all may say the verse and pray, and all at once sit down to table together, shall be corrected once or twice, if this have happened through his own fault or * Deus in adjutorium.

† Oculi omnium, or, Edent pauperes.

statutam horam, vel postea quicquam cibi vel potus percipere. Sed et si cui offertur aliquid a Priore, et accipere renuerit, hora qua desideraverit, hoc quod prius recusavit, aut aliud omnino non percipiat, usque ad emendationem congruam.
