THE CHRYSOLITE GEMSTONE OF THE DOMINIONS
St. Dimitry of Rostov, 17th Century Saint, Hierarch & Ascetic notes:
"The Angelic Order of the Dominions are noted as joyfully serving God unceasingly. They are directed to send power for prudent and wise governing and management to authorities on earth placed by God. They teach how to control the senses, how to subdue in oneself dissolute desires and passions, how to enslave the flesh to the spirit, and offer aid in conquering temptations."
