A monk – is someone in love.
Above everything else he desires to think continually of his beloved, he wants to be with Him, knows himself loved by Him and loves Him with a burning answering love.
For that reason, a monk longs to create an environment and to find a way of life that reminds him continuously of the One he loves and searches…
(p. Bernardin Schellenberger) 

Since the very beginning there are people who travelled due to an unquenchable thirst.  A thirst that puts many on the path towards God.
We feature a few of the ways monks have chosen and also indicate several stepping stones in their search for God.
