A. .Many of Ihe orders lake vows of silence, but especially the Trapplsts and llenedictinos. Some orders have mona.itic divisions where they stay In the monastery, pray, Mudv, farm and have perpetual silence. They use sign language lo communicate, hut arc free lo talk lo the supervisors. Father Bridges, pastor of Sacred Heart Church, said there's often a rush lo this type of order after wartime service. Men who've experienced hardships in the war often choose a non active, meditative life In a Trapplsl or Benedictine monastery.
