Just a gentle reminder. There will be lots of comments on Social Media the Master would like to remind the brethren to carefully consider posts on social media and that in particular any posts are seen as respectful towards those with whom we disagree, as the Rule says.
DAY TWENTY THREE
The outward life of a Priest of the Society.
Members of the Society in modelling their own lives on Christ, must endeavour to reflect his life in the way they live and be ready to put themselves at the service of others. In so doing:
i.The Brethren shall do all in their power to support other priests in their ministry, avoiding criticising them or in any other way compromising the priesthood.
ii.The Brethren shall be known for their forbearance and good manners, the more so when associating with those with whom they disagree.
iii.The Brethren shall exercise charity in conversation and moderation in their recreational activities. They must avoid giving scandal in any form of personal behaviour.
But what to those who find? Ah, this
Nor tongue, nor pen can show;
The love of Jesus what it is
None but his loved ones know.
