What is useful in the rule for the laity is whatever immediately reflects life in Christ; there is an analogue between living in a monastic community and political community, but political community must be explained on its own terms.

Venerable Father Anthony, leading a life equal to that of angels you came to Kyiv. Living there, you enlightened your fatherland, pointing the way to the Kingdom to many monks and nuns and thus you led your homeland to Christ. Pray to Christ that He save our souls. pic.twitter.com/Qa9ZziwAZ1— Pontifical Oriental Institute (@theorientale) July 10, 2021
