Comparing Married Life and Monastic Life

In Orthodox Christianity, both marriage and monasticism are understood to be vocations. Each of these two great callings can be a pathway to God, and both are holy and sacred. Listen now as Fr. Nicholas Apostola draws on his memories of Romanian monastics in exile during the Communist period to share his perspective on the similarities and differences between the vocations of married life and monastic life.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
