A Defence of Monasticism

   
Metropolitan Anastassy

“Monasticism[...]can find for itself an entire cloud of witnesses and advocates. Nevertheless, it is even to this day subjected to constant attacks by its many opponents who seek to deny it of its very right to exist. If they have been scandalized only by the examples of those among monastics who lead imperfect lives and who defile and demean this lofty calling, then their negative attitude towards monasteries and monasticism in general would have some basis. But to judge monasticism as a whole by a few bad monks is as inappropriate as to disparage the merit of all who bear the military uniform because of a few poor and dissolute soldiers and officers.”
—“A Defence of Monasticism”
