The Reading from the Martyrology

September is the Month of Our Lady of Sorrows

The Second Sorrow - Matthew 2

13 And after they were departed, behold an angel of the Lord appeared in sleep to Joseph, saying: Arise, and take the child and his mother, and fly into Egypt: and be there until I shall tell thee. For it will come to pass that Herod will seek the child to destroy him.
Qui cum recessissent, ecce angelus Domini apparuit in somnis Joseph, dicens : Surge, et accipe puerum, et matrem ejus, et fuge in Aegyptum, et esto ibi usque dum dicam tibi. Futurum est enim ut Herodes quaerat puerum ad perdendum eum.

14 Who arose, and took the child and his mother by night, and retired into Egypt: and he was there until the death of Herod:
Qui consurgens accepit puerum et matrem ejus nocte, et secessit in Aegyptum : et erat ibi usque ad obitum Herodis :

15 That it might be fulfilled which the Lord spoke by the prophet, saying: Out of Egypt have I called my son.
Ut adimpleretur quod dictum est a Domino per prophetam dicentem : Ex Aegypto vocavi filium meum.

The Reading of the Rule of Saint Benedict for September 13
II. Qualis debeat esse abbas
23 In doctrina sua namque abbas apostolicam debet illam semper formam servare in qua dicit: Argue, obsecra, increpa, 
24 id est, miscens temporibus tempora, terroribus blandimenta, dirum magistri, pium patris ostendat affectum, 
25 id est indisciplinatos et inquietos debet durius arguere, oboedientes autem et mites et patientes ut in melius proficiant obsecrare, neglegentes et contemnentes ut increpat et corripiat admonemus.
26 Neque dissimulet peccata delinquentium; sed et mox ut coeperint oriri radicitus ea ut praevalet amputet, memor periculi Heli sacerdotis de Silo. 
27 Et honestiores quidem atque intellegibiles animos prima vel secunda admonitione verbis corripiat, 28 improbos autem et duros ac superbos vel inoboedientes verberum vel corporis castigatio in ipso initio peccati coerceat, sciens scriptum: Stultus verbis non corrigitur, 
29 et iterum: Percute filium tuum virga et liberabis animam eius a morte.

Chapter 2 Qualities the Abbot must have
23 For in his teaching the abbot should always observe the apostle’s norm, where he says: use argument, exhort, rebuke. (2 Tim 4:2) 
24 That is, he must adapt to circumstances, mingling gentleness with sternness, alternating the strictness of a master with the loving affection shown by a father: 
25 thus he should sternly argue with the undisciplined and restless; he will exhort the obedient, the mild, and the patient to advance in virtue; and the negligent and arrogant we admonish him to rebuke and correct.
26 He must never disregard the sins of offenders; but as soon as they sprout, cut them out as best he can by the roots, remembering the fate of Eli, the priest of Shiloh. (1 Sam 2:11-4:18) 
27 Those of honorable and perceptive dispositions may for the first or second time be corected with words of admonition; 
28 but the shameless and hard, the arrogant or disobedient are to be checked by whipping or other corporal punishment at their first offense, knowing that it is written: The fool is not corrected with words (Prov 29:19), 
29 and again, Strike your son with a rod and you will free his soul from death (Prov 23:14).
