There are actually (at least) three Saints, one St Macarius of Egypt and one St Macarius of Alexandria, and one St Makarios of Corinth.

The one from Egypt (who was friends with Macarius of Alexandria) seems most closely associated with monks.

Not sure how “Batolian” fits in.

Batol means vergin!
Batolian monks is a group of multi religions men who regret falling in iniquity of sexual feelings (its a sin to our community) We don’t think people are sinners by following their hearts or living in couples, we are just feeling that way of Lord (our way) (personal way) is a man’s lone trip.
I am the first Muslim Monk in our Batolian community.
So Batoli is a way to God as we believe. Some says, its a good way to not be crying in lone Valantins :stuck_out_tongue:

Btw Father Macarius of Alexandria was first to aprove Batolians to make own covenants of monasticism and to live between people normaly just not to fall in sins.

That is very cool Jedon, a multi-religious group of monks gives hope to tolerance and community ideals.
