Good Zeals: This is not just a gathering up of the monastic priorities in the other chapters in concise memorable guidelines; there is also something new: through his notion of good zeal the precedence over all hierarchical rules is now given to love for one another, at the same time this 72nd chapter on good zeal crowns Benedicts gradually unfolding picture of the goal of a fraternal community inspired by a spirit of reverent, selfless, open, considerate, vying love; such love transcends all rules.
