Is there monasticism in the Orthodox Church? - J.A.
Last week we considered that monasticism is a lifestyle, which makes it easier to focus entirely on Christ, with less concern or distraction.
Nevertheless, whether in the monastery or in marriage, there is the same struggle — to focus on “the one thing needful.”
Again, we see clearly in scripture two ways of life to which we are called — the life that was like Paul’s (1 Cor. 7) and the married life.
We must be absolutely clear that one is not better than the other, though members in both states would argue for the other.
