go figure

The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church helpfully explains that Christian monasticism differs from non-Christian monasticism in that Christian monastics follow Christ.

Glad we got that cleared up.

(Then again, the ODCC also defines love as "the principle of God's action and man's response" (italics mine). And before you tell me that's because It's Old: this edition was published in 1997. Yeah. The 4th edition comes out in October, but I decline to hold my breath on this one. The ODCC is not having its best night ever over here in Hibbard.)

Gee ... I hope it's been of SOME use! :^)

Well, I suppose it does say something about it that I was paging through the ODCC in the first place.

(Of course, it says nothing about ME that I was paging through the ODCC.)
