…Remember the teaching, elders (watch over their souls, Heb 13:17). This takes community living, where our lives are lived before all. So obey your spiritual leaders, and submit to them, recognizing their authority over you, for they are constantly watching over your souls, and guarding your spiritual welfare” 1995.06.00-T02
“The leaders are responsible to watch out for (look after, watch over) the sheep — as a watchman who loses sleep over the sheep. The elders must make sure that the sheep are hating their flesh so much that they crucify it daily (Lk 9:23). When it rises up, they must judge it.” 1996.08.04-T01
