A carthusian novice master reminds his charges, and his readers, that the call to live wholly and radically in Christ is the vocation of all Christians and all humanity. 'The Christian is not a separate species of human being, but what each person is called to be. And the monk is not a separate species of Christian. He tries to be what each Christian ought to be. Conformity to Christ in faith, hope, and love: this is holiness, and each person is called to this holiness.'
