A brother who by his own fault leaves the monastery…

A brother who by his own fault leaves the monastery, should, if he wish to return, first promise full reparation for his having gone away; and then let him be received back again in the lowest place, in order that his humility may thus be tested. Should he depart again, let him be received back again, and so a third time; but after that he should understand that all prospect of return is denied him.
