Examin Sunday 18 June 2016

Have humility not only in your heart but also by your very appearance make it always manifest to those who see you … head bowed and your eyes toward the ground. Feeling the guilt of your sins at every moment, you should consider yourself already present at the dread Judgement and constantly say in your heart what the publican in the Gospel said with his eyes fixed on the earth: "Lord, I am a sinner and not worthy to lift up my eyes to heaven" (Luke 18:13; Matt. 8:8); 

based on the rule of St Benedict, Ch 7 'On Humility'
