Chapter 25: Serious Faults
A monk guilty of a serious fault is to be excluded from both the table and the oratory. No other monk should associate or converse with them at all. The monk will work alone at the tasks assigned to them, living continually in sorrow and penance, pondering that fearful judgement of the Apostle: “Such a man is handed over for the destruction of his flesh that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord” (1 Cor. 5:5). Let them take their food alone in an amount and at a time the abbot considers appropriate for them. They should not be blessed by anyone passing by, nor should the food that is given them be blessed.
