The life of the Orthodox Christian monks

Monks leave their life for a life for God. They stay in monasteries,where they pray for their souls and for all the world,they paint,write,create religious clothes. They don't sleep too much,because is considered a sin any kind of exageration. They don't eat too much,just simple food,without specialities. Their life is very simple,they never get married,some of them move in the mountains where they pray and live a wild life in the God's name. Some of them become saints,and this thing can be proofed after their death when their bodies remain intacts,having a beautiful smell.

Their life is not at all simple,they have to fight with all the temptations of the world and to imitate the life of Jesus Christ.

They pray day and night and stay in touch with God in every moment of their life.
