THE MONK FLEES FROM THE WORLD

The monk flees from the world not because there is something wrong with the world but because there is something wrong with him. In the world, given the choice between God and the world, he will always choose the world. Man's greatest enemy is not the world but his own concupiscence.

In the world, man becomes a slave to his concupiscence. Away from the world, Man becomes master of his concupiscence.
