Thursday 18th April, the Community will be praying Vigils and Compline privately.

In the case of meals, if anyone do not arrive before the verse…

In the case of meals, if anyone do not arrive before the verse, so that all may say the verse and the prayers together and all at the same time go to the table – if anyone by his carelessness or fault do not arrive, let him up to the second time be corrected for this; if then he does not amend, let him not be allowed to share the common meal, but let him be separated from the company of all the brethren and take his meal alone, and be deprived of his allowance of wine, until he have made satisfaction and amend. And let the same punishment be inflicted on him who is not present at the verse which is said after the meal. And let no one venture to take any food or drink before the appointed hour or afterwards. But if the superior offer a brother anything and he refuse it, then when he wants something he formerly refused or something else, let him receive nothing whatever, until he have made fitting amends.
