Dead to the world

                                   A  hermit is to be dead to the world, for by his very vocation he is called to be set apart, living a life in imitation of the angels.  W hether he be praised or offended, a hermit must react as though he were a dead man.  H e must not be disturbed by insults, nor prideful when people praise him.  I n his humility, he finds beauty in a hidden life.
