Christian / ascetic hate for parents means the height whence the Reason of the relationship with them appears. Monasticism's essence does not regard monks but anyone to the degree that one wants to develop a closer contact with reality. Under this condition, monks seem to leave the 'world' unjustly. If everything should grow inside the living relationship with the Christ, what is the use of a withdrawal to the monastery?

Perhaps those who accuse monasticism under the pretext of caring for the essence of Christianity or for the social nature of man will be sorry to learn that monasticism achieves precisely a compliance with human nature and an appropriation of the Christian essence, building up attachment to Christian principles -- to the exact same principles according to which it is accepted that the monastery won't bring man closer to God than life in the 'world'.
