    Thank you

    Thank you to those who chose to contact me via Private Message. I am ok. On the human level I am struggling. I have had to throw out contents of my refrigerator and will need to buy a new refrigerator on Tuesday after the Easter break; meanwhile, I have been without a fridge since yesterday. Re-stocking the fridge is going to be costly and money I really do not have and I need to buy a new fridge on rental purchase - cant really afford that either. It is all a bit of a financial headache just now but "this too shall pass". The other thing that will pass is my little Maltese Cross, Buddie, refusing his medication no matter what I tried. Finally, I got it into him by crushing the tablet and putting it in a small amount of milk. He already had diarrhea over the past few days and I am hoping the small amount of milk will not increase the problem. Not the best of thing to have to clean up first thing in the morning but jolly good it is on the vinyl and not the carpet (counting my blessings). These things are extremely minor in the bigger picture. In fact, I was happy to have something to endure at the commencement of the Easter Triduum as we go into Easter Saturday. On the human level it is all a bit of a worry while on the spiritual level I have been happy while repentant that I have not born it better than I have. But I have borne it as I was able........very far from perfection, not even close. But the Good Lord does not ask success, rather at desire and effort. Falling far short is a blessed opportunity for self knowledge and humility. Success is always The Lord's Domain alone. He grants success where He May and withholds it wherever He May. All is Good, all is Grace. I am overwhelmingly and extremely grateful that I live alone and able to speak with The Lord aloud, and I often do. I am reminded again of St Teresa's bookmark: Let nothing disturb you, Let nothing frighten you, All things are passing; God only is changeless. Patience gains all things. Who has God wants nothing. God alone suffices.

    How about "In Our Own Words: Religious Life in a Changing World" - this book was written collaboratively by 13 younger religious (some still in formation, others recently finally professed) from 13 different orders in the US. It was published last year http://www.globalsistersreport.org/news/trends/new-book-younger-sisters-write-about-religious-life-present-51791 I will admit that I haven't read it, but I know about it because one of my American sisters was part of it.

    Hi

    If I understand your post correctly, you haven't been going to Mass. The first thing to do is to return to the sacraments. As you're able to pray the rosary, ask Our Lady to help you get there, because we can do nothing without them. It doesn't make sense to think about giving your life to Christ as a religious if you can't bring yourself to receive his gift of himself to you in the Eucharist. As he said to Peter, "Unless you let me wash your feet, you can have no part in me." I think the same thing applies here. I'm happy to see you back on the phorum, and I will pray for you.

    Well, that depends. "The Right to be Merry" is still very much like the Poor Clare Collettines of today, with just a few changes, and the same applies to "My Beloved" and some Carmelite monasteries, particularly the JMJ Carmels. It just depends on what someone is attracted to.

    Peace and Good! Here is the link to the video I did during Maundy Thursday night procession here, at Braga, Portugal. Typical are the barefoot «farricocos» bearing iron cressets with burning pinecones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYe6rZom2w0 Follow enjoying a Holy Easter! Blessings! Br.

    I think if people are reading such books as aids to discernment, they need to read books that are more recent. Those written a half century or more ago are not going to give an accurate portrait of religious life today. There are so many good books about religious life in the 21st century! But nostalgia is not a good guide to the future. For the record, I have read all of the books mentioned here. While they may have been enjoyable, they do not really present good insight into what is going on now. Of course, if people are just reading them for historical insight, they are more appropriate but, even then, they are very case-specific.

    For a PMer's dad who is critically ill in intensive care

    Some of you will remember Marigold from her days on Vocation Station. Her dad was rushed into hospital a few days ago. He's seriously ill with an unknown heart condition, disorientated, and not able to communicate much. Please pray for him. He is named for St Francis. I don't know which one, but let's ask all the Francises to intercede for him.
