Examin Sunday 1 May 2016

The superior should be obeyed as a father with the respect due him so as not to offend God . … the superior, for his part, must not think himself fortunate in his exercise of authority but in his role as one serving you in love. In your eyes he shall hold the first place among you by the dignity of his office, but in fear before God he shall be as the least among you. He must show himself as an example of good works toward all. Let him admonish the unruly, cheer the fainthearted, support the weak, and be patient toward 
all (1 Thes 5:14). 
From the Rule of St Augustine: on Governance & Obedience
