Rule of Life

As an Order, we commit to a Rule of Life that involves things like a commitment to praying the Daily Office, a weekly participation in the Eucharist, et cetera. But the goal of this “rule” is the intentional, devotional discipline to growing in grace, resisting sin and temptation, and ordering our worship, work, and leisure as a pleasing sacrifice to God (Romans 12:1-2).

Most of us need some kind of “rule of life” because we default too easily to our fallen nature, which is disordered, distracted, and self-centered. Without intentionally infusing new habits--like we embrace in the Order--bad, unChristlike habits often rule our lives, dulling our capacity to be fully human and matured in Christ.
