SI FRATRI IMPOSSIBILIA INJUNGANTUR,

26 Apr. Si cui fratri aliqua forte gravia aut im26 Dec. possibilia injunguntur, suscipiat quidem jubentis imperium cum omni mansuetudine et obedientia. Quod si omnino virium suarum viderit pondus excedere, impossibilitatis suæ causas ei qui sibi præest patienter et opportune suggerat, non superbiendo, aut resistendo, vel contradicendo. Quod si post suggestionem suam in sua sententia Prioris imperium perduraverit, sciat junior ita sibi expedire, et ex charitate confidens de adjutorio Dei, obediat.

IF A BROTHER BE ORDERED TO DO IMPOSSIBILITIES.

IF any hard or impossible commands be enjoined a Brother, let him receive the injunctions of him who biddeth him with all mildness and obedience. But if he shall see that the burthen altogether exceedeth the measure of his strength, let him patiently and in due season state the cause of this inability unto his Superior, without manifesting any pride, resistance, or contradiction. If after his suggestion, the Prior shall still persist in his command, let the Brother know that it is for his good, and trusting in the assistance of God, let him obey through love for Him.

27 Aug.

27 Apr. SUMMOPERE præcavendum est, ne quavis 27 Dec. occasione præsumat alter alterum defendere Monachum in Monasterio, aut quasi tueri, etiamsi qualibet consanguinitatis propinquitate jungantur. Nec quolibet modo id a Monachis præsumatur, quia exinde gravissima occasio scandalorum oriri potest. Quod si quis hæc transgressus fuerit, acrius coerceatur.
