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

In the first place, to love the Lord God…

In the first place, to love the Lord God with all one’s heart, all one’s
soul and all one’s strength.
Then, one’s neighbour as oneself.
Then not to kill.
Not to commit adultery.
Not to steal.
Not to covet.
Not to bear false witness.
To honour all men.
Not to do to another what one would not have done to oneself.
To deny oneself, in order to follow Christ.
To chastise the body.
Not to seek soft living.
To love fasting.
To relieve the poor.
To clothe the naked.
To visit the sick.
To bury the dead.
To help the afflicted.
To console the sorrowing.
To avoid worldly conduct.
To prefer nothing to the love of Christ.
