But how much do we give?
There are monks in Greece that live in caves and have their good roped up to them in buckets, so they live in poverty and chastity.

This is a dillema that is often on my mind. How much do we sacrifice?
God gave us life. How much life do we live in misery?

In my marriage I viewed it as bearing a cross, to live in a sexless marriage. I don't know if I was right or wrong.

But the world could not function if we all took vows of poverty and chastity.
