CHAPTER 50: BRETHREN WHO ARE WORKING FAR FROM THE ORATORY OR ARE ON A JOURNEY
IF brethren are working really far away and cannot get to the oratory at the right time, and the Abbot considers that this is the case, then they should say the Office at the spot where they are working, kneeling down in reverence to God. Similarly those who have been sent on a journey must not let the regular hours pass them by, but say them privately as best they can, not failing to fulfil their daily task of service.
