A Good Thing

So they sound like something out of Monty Python or Terry Pratchett: never mind. The rule is not so very strict, unless you feel you are called to share the life of the Little Sisters of the Rich. I think the line in the full statues is a good one for everyone that says:

All are to develop a formal pattern of prayer that is consistent with their
lifestyle even if they develop it from the optional prayers. The recommended
method of prayer for all following this Rule is the Liturgy of the Hours.
(Statutes 12.f)

Or there is always Charles de Foucald: "I live on one slice of bread a day. Hey, why don't you join me in my one-room hermitage in the dry and roasting-hot desert, and we can share it!" Then he wondered why he had no takers. . .
