The mom and dad have 4 children. They agree to give the children to the church, because, even though they are poor, will have a good quality of life.
Good idea, they will have a good life there. Better than here!
When these boys become 6, we are going to make these children oblates
Monks had to follow the strict Vows of Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience. Also, the monasteries asked for money, but this young man came from a poof family.
Do you accept to take these vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience?
This monk is put into the painful situation because this man needs help, but the monk can't help him. A monk can't speak to the surrounding community
Hello? Excuse Me? Do you speak my language?
At any age of 15 and above, a person can join the church as a novice. Novices get their head shaved and entered an initiation and a mass.
Welcome young ones and my peers. We are happy to have you!
One of the daily jobs of the Monks was taking care of the poor and the sick. Also, any medical needs were taken care of by the Monks.
Well, ma'am, I am here to take care of you. You will be all good soon! Thank the church
This is pretty nice! A nice bed and good sanitation! I even get a regular meal with wine, unlike at home. What else could I ask for!
Living in the dorms was a great thing for the poor monks. They offered daily meals and sometimes wine. Additionally, they were safe because of the stone building. And they had doctors on standby for all the health concerns.
