An unbroken succession of those seeking perfection from the time of Christ....

Suarez notes that there were monks before Anthony and that from Anthony to Basil, from Basil to Augustine and from Augustine to Benedict, there is an unbroken line of religious. Not all would be clerics or priests, but many would be.
Suarez writes that Pope Urban speaks of the primitive religious state at being obvious 224 years from the birth of Christ. This looks to me like a good case for the unbroken line of religious down to the present day.
Think on this, 2012 plus years of continuous religious seeking the perfection of their souls, minds and hearts with the aid of the Trinity. Awesome!
