A state of perfection?

With the religious reforms of Martin Luther in the sixteenth century came the supression of religious life, which, during that time, had the form of monastic life. It seems that his own experience as a monk moved him into strongly attacking religous life and vows, especially that of celibacy.

I experienced religious life during some years in my life. I would like, in this post, to share some thoughts on how it began, why someone would want to embrace it, and what future, if any, it might have.
