plus... when i listened to F.Meletios Webber on his podcast talk he said this as a introduction.
He is going to "...share with you about once every two weeks, some scenes from the life of the monastery to tell you what's going on here and to tell you a little about monastic life in general and to do all that in a way that doesn't infringe on the basic serenity of monastic life, which is to do with being hidden. This hiddenness, is something monks crave, because it's only in hiding, in a sense, that they can begin to appreciate the fullness of the love of God. If one's ego isn't on show for the rest of the world, then it dies and it's part of that death, that is an important part of the monastic experience."
I don't agree with the ego part he talks about as, you can get ego in any community whether it's a group of monks, or a group of businessmen or builders on a site. Where ever there is people you will have ego issues.
But the part that interested me to do with being hid was what he said about the love of God.
