"The orientation of the monk is towards heaven, towards the life of another world. For this reason they are frequently referred to as 'earthly angels'; for while dwelling on earth they live as true citizens of heaven. To visit them is to visit the earthly paradise." (from the Sayings of the Desert Fathers)
