Integrity – Christine Valters Paintner

June 10, 2018

“To love as a monk, we must commit to living our lives with as much integrity as possible.  Integrity has the same root as the words integral and integrated: integritas, which means wholeness and soundness.  To act with integrity means to always be moving toward wholeness and not feeling divided; this is the same meaning as the root of the word monk.  The desert calls us to a singleness of heart and to live from this commitment.”
