Monastic Life in the Syrian Orthodox Church of Antioch by His Holiness Moran Mor Ignatius Zakka I Iwas | Malankara Archdiocese of The Syrian Orthodox Church In North America: We call the monastic life a philosophy of Christian law and character. It is a way of abandoning worldly life. It is filled with yearning to attain the life hereafter. In the monastic life, acts countenanced and proscribed in the world are to be avoided, the desires of the flesh are to be disciplined; all wanton impulses are to be checked, everything that cannot be brought into harmony with the true Christian faith is to be avoided.
