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

The measure of excommunication and punishment…

The measure of excommunication and punishment should be determined according to the gravity of the offence, which shall be decided by the abbot. If a brother be found guilty of a lesser offence, let him be excluded from the common table. And this shall be the rule for one who is excluded from the common table: that until he have made satisfaction he shall not intone a psalm or antiphon in the oratory, nor read a lesson. Let him have his meals alone after the community meals: if the brethren, for instance, eat at the sixth hour, let him eat at the ninth; if they eat at the ninth hour let him eat in the evening; until by suitable satisfaction he have obtained pardon.
