"The Blessing of Your Parents Shall Always Be With You"
Unity That Gives Birth to Salvation
The "Least Interesting" Person
When someone takes the veil, she dies for the world. How do we understand these words correctly, if the monastic carries out her mission in this world? I don't mean dying for the world per se; I'm trying to infer that monastic living may be as diverse as it gets. Our perception of monastic life is often one-sided: a monk is thought to be a person who doesn't talk to anyone, doesn't smile, stares at the ground and sits in voluntary confinement.
Abbess Euphrosinia: Of course, it is. Everything depends on how the person responds to God’s calling.
