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).

Those of us in the Order of St. Anthony are on a journey that is probably more theoretical than practical at this point. At this writing, we’ve only been on this trajectory a little over a year, but it has proven to be so provocative and engaging. The bottom line is all of us want a deeper relationship with God and we want to be more radical in our participation in the kingdom of God—not because we have to in order to be “saved,” but because we all get one shot at this gift called “life” and we want to live it as large as we can for God.
