During the daily meals in Benedictine monasteries, one of the monks reads aloud to the other monks (who otherwise eat in silence). Among the daily readings is a section of the regulations of St. Benedict-- a document monks simply call "The Holy Rule". In the course of a year of meals, the monks hear the entire Holy Rule read three times.

A monk of Subiaco Abbey, Arkansas has set up a website providing the daily reading from the Holy Rule plus a reflection.
