School of Obedience

 Speaking on a human level, Christ raised Himself to primacy in the Church, the world and human history by obedience. No-one can be a good superior who has not gone through the school of obedience. Adam lost his power and primacy over the animals and the natural elements in the hour when he showed himself disobedient to God. 'Obedience begets obedience; if a man listens to God, then God listens to him', said Abba Moses.
