Service of Authority and Obedience, The

Instruction

By Congregation for the Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life (Author)
$8.95 AUD

This document underlines the "roots of obedience" found "in that search for God and His will which is also the will of believers".

The text also deals with the issue of "difficult obedience", when "the demands made on the religious are particularly hard to meet" or when - in the words of St Francis of Assisi - the person who must obey feels that there are "better or more useful things for his soul than those ordered him by his superior". In these situations we appeal to "Christ first among the obedient" who "learned obedience through all he suffered".

The function of authority is presented through the category of "human mediation" of God's will. The document goes on to clarify that this does not mean "the will of the superior coincides perfectly with God's own will". When, however, a person in religious life is faced with a legitimate order from a superior, the Lord asks him or her to obey the authority which in that moment represents Him.
