Odd. Their Catholicos has been here for decades, and just now they get a monastery.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Well, given their numbers, I think they were encouraged to choose marriage over monasticism. I don't know if there were any Assyrian monks left elsewhere.
