Hi I'm a Buddhist. Buddhism has quite a strong monastic tradition. That has been true in the past for Christianity, but there seem to be very few monks these days. Most Christian monks seem to be Roman Catholic, but I believe there are also Anglican Monks and Nuns? Do you think it would be good to have a strong monastic tradition in Christianity? My own opinion is that it would be a good thing. A life of contemplation, discipline, prayer and having the time to connect deeply to the core of your spirituality. What do others think?
