There was a young man already keeping all the commandments, who asked “What do I still lack?” And the LORD answered: "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.

Not escape from the world, but ability to loving solidarity, to kindhearted company… therefore we need the vows of
