To be loved more than feared

I think I’ll let Benedict speak for himself today ..

Let the Abbot strive to be loved more than to be feared.

The Abbot should not be restless or worried, nor extreme or stubborn,  nor jealous nor overly suspicious, because then he will never have peace.

He should be far-seeing and thoughtful, discerning and moderate.
