b-b-b-b-b-b-b-benedictines b-b-b-b-b-b-b-benedictines to the bo-o-o-o-ne There are only two Orders: 1. The Benedictines 2. all the other ones :monk:

Benedictines! amesome and under-appreciated. Contemplative wannabes always seem to want to go Carmelite. Though Carmelites are pretty razzle dazzle too.

Other - the PPC Phatmass Phemale Community Superior: Mother Rosary Bede (aka Iggy) [url="http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/topic/106624-the-ppc/"]http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/topic/106624-the-

Okay, so I'm torn. I chose two---Franciscan and Benedictine. I love the PCPA's (perhaps because I am friends with the nuns and help support 2 monasteries :) I've come to love their Franciscan spirituality and their devotion to the Blessed Sacrament.

Franciscan and Carmelite :) Once my kids are older, I'm going to seriously consider joining the Third Order Carmelites.

Franciscans most definitely. They are the most popular Order, and there are about thirty-five thousand of them at the very least in the world. Without them, the world would be in chaos. I want to join the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal so badly, and there are rarely Orders that are half as extreme as them. There are some Monastic Orders such as Trappists which are more extreme, but when it comes down to the regular Orders such as Dominicans, Carmelites, and Franciscans, the Franciscans have a much more extreme lifestyle.

I appreciate the encouragement! It just seemed to me when I had read the duties and responsibilities, that it wasn't suited to me in my current situation. But at your advice I will look more closely. I feel a tugging on my heart for something like this and it may just be what the Lord is asking of me. Thank you for caring! :)

I am interested and have lots of respect for the Trappist and Carthusian orders also. Visited the Trappists a couple of times - I think I like them because they follow the rule of St Benedict fairly strictly. Don't think I'm called to either though.
