Abstract: Ankstesnių tyrimų rezultatai, aptarti straipsnyje „Sielovada šv. Benedikto reguloje“, padėjo įvardyti ne tik sielovados sampratos kaitą prieš šv. Benedikto regulos paplitimą ir vėliau, bet ir regulos išplitimo priežastis vykdant misijas. Tai pagrindas norint suvokti, kokio pobūdžio sielovada atskleidžiama reguloje. Šiame tęstiniame straipsnyje analizuojami šv. Benedikto reguloje nurodyti trys pagrindiniai sielovados principai: tylos pastoracija, tarnystės ir liturgija, kuri yra viso vienuolinio gyvenimo esmė. Atskleidžiamas regulos naujumas, lyginant su Mokytojo regula, ir šio sielovados mokymo įtaka Vakaruose

As the patriarch of Western monasticism, St. Benedict made liturgy the center and the cornerstone of monastic activity, i.e., pastoral care. He emphasized the relation between liturgy and prayer. In comparison to the Rule of the Master, the Rule of St. Benedict is different and novel. He adds chapters related to the pastoral care of silence and expands the perception of liturgy. The emphasis put on the equilibrium changed the perception of ministries, which make an important part of pastoral care. By the help of pope Gregory the Great, St. Benedict’s teaching on pastoral care penetrated into all spheres of the Church. The communal singing, which appeared in the Church, was based on the singing of the Benedictine Liturgy of the Hours. [...]
