Of monks and madmen

There has been a lot written about "Into Great Silence", a film which shows the life of monks in the Carthusian monastery of Le Grande Chartreuse. It wasn't long after my wife and I saw this movie that the murders at Virginia Tech happened. All I can think about are the human extremes here: monks who spend their time in solitary silence before God, listening deeply; and someone weeping in his own howling, desperate isolation, one that turns to evil rage and the destruction of other lives.
