To be a Carthusian Monk ~


Watched a film entitled The Great Silence about Carthusian monks. I had once wanted to be one of them. All through the film I noticed that not one of them ever smiled.
With all that happiness inside, how can one help but smile?

I've seen clips from the film and I noticed the same thing...I guess being a monk is verrrry serious business...
