The Holy Rule of Saint Augustine – Chapter 2

December 31, 2007




10. Be diligent in prayer at the appointed hours and times.

11. Let no one do anything in the oratory, except that for which it was made, whence also it has received its name, so that if anyone wish to pray there in his free time, outside the appointed hours, he be not disturbed by those who think it necessary to do something else there.

12. When you pray to God in psalms and hymns, let your heart be occupied with what your lips pronounce.

13. And do not sing, except what you find set down for singing. But what is not so marked shall not be sung.
