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?

That is something I'd have wondered about as well, Charles. Indeed, it seems surprising..

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