The Monk Calls… – Christine Valters-Paintner 

March 30, 2016

“The monk calls the world to spaciousness and presence rather than rushing and productivity. While the world constantly offers possible ways to numb us from everyday struggles, the monk takes the hard and demanding path of inner work and growth. The monk chooses a simple life in the midst of an abundance of riches.”
— Christine Valters Paintner, PhD from Desert Mothers and Fathers: Early Christian Wisdom Sayings Annotated and Explained
