Cultivate and Care for the Garden

"For man, authority often means possession, power, dominion, success. For God, however, authority means service, humility, love. It means entering into the logic of Jesus Christ who leans down to wash the feet of His disciples, who seeks man's authentic good, who heals wounds, who is capable of a love so great as to give His life, because He is Love.” Pope Benedict XVI VATICAN CITY, 29 JAN 2012 (VIS)

We can also make a comparison to the parable of the good shepherd. The good shepherd takes care of his sheep and protects them, leads them to the good grass and guarantees their freedom to live. They will come in and go out and find pasture. (John 10, 9) 
Man is the good shepherd of the world, ready to lay down his own life to protect the sheep from the wolf that, like a thief, comes only to steal and slaughter and destroy. (John 10, 10)
Laying down one’s own life is the foundation of all authority.  In the Gospel, authority is never the imposition of one’s will on someone else; rather, it is the grace to make life and freedom for another grow by giving oneself. Jesus reveals this to us about God himself and this is what is offered to mankind.

When we were baptized, we were anointed and given a participation in these three offices of Christ — priest, prophet and king. As the celebrant anointed us with Sacred Chrism, he prayed: "As Christ was anointed Priest, Prophet, and King, so may you live always as a member of his body, sharing everlasting life."
