"It is not sufficient to slip into a monk's habit and to sing "Gloria Patri." He who wants to live as a monk has to renounce possession and family, must be able to integrate himself into a community of persons who did not choose one another. Above all he must "truly seek God," as St. Benedict says. He has to examine himself and to allow himself to be examined."

From "To become a Monk", Kloster Einsiedeln.
