The Cœnobitic Life as an Image of the Life of the Holy Trinity

by Archimandrite Glykerios
Translated by Bishop [Archbishop] Chrysostomos

10 pp.

A beautiful and moving exposition of the Trinitarian basis of cœnobitic monasticism. Father Glykerios emphasizes that a good monastic community, one that mirrors the interpersonal love of the Holy Trinity, is the prototype for any good Christian community.
