There are many misconceptions about what monasticism is. It may be worthwhile to begin by saying that Orthodox monasticism is not divided into differing orders, each having its own mission or orientation. Every Orthodox monk and nun has the same vocation: to become like Mary seated at our Saviour’s feet, attending to His words and the one thing needful. Neither is monasticism a preparation for the priesthood, or a step to anything else; it is simply an end in itself, the following of Christ through a life of prayer free of worldly distraction.
