A way to become Christians

1595

The Monastic life is the way to become Christians, to live the Christian life.

The Monastic life is not in the rules and restrictions but in liberating ourselves through which we become one body with Christ.

We need to remove everything that disturbs us on the path to become like Christ. And what disturbs us on the path? What we need to overcome? What
destroys our chances for salvation? We ourselves (our proud – I).

Therefore the monastic life is arranged so that above all, we must seek God. Not ourselves or anyone else, not authority, power, position, fame, work, nothing but Christ. So we can say as the Apostle Paul said: “It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.”

Father Joachim Parr
