What orders are you considering/with?


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

I just found an order that I heartfully love, it is the Fathers of Mercy. They have an emphesis on retreats on confession and the most holy Eucharist!

Then I am considering the Legion of Christ.

Finally I am considering the most, the diocesean way of life, but am open to the above two.

Most of you on this board know I'm sold to any of the mendicant orders, but the more I pray about it, the more I am attrated to the Discalced Carmelites. There is such a need for prayer and penance in the world today, and unfortunately, the human race at large doesn't want to do it. I guess the next step is a letter to my vocations directer and, when God sees fit, a visit.

Hehe. They're at Holy Hill, WI. It's the largest monastery in America in terms of annual pilgrimages, so I can sneak one of those in as well.

I've never had the privilege of making it down to Holy Hill, but it's only a few hours away from my home. It is supposed to be absolutely tremendous!!

I'm discerning with the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration and the Sister Servants of the Eternal Word- both in Alabama.

Daughter of Mary: Have you visited the Discalsed Carmelites in Buffalo NY, or South Dakota? One of my friends is a member of the SD convent :)

Diocesan preisthood. I wanted to join and Order, but the Parish priest said that diocesan preists are needed. Changed my plans and idea,s but who cares, it's not my call as to what I do. I would like to become a diocesan preist the more I consider it, but I also want to be free to go out and spread the Word. Diocesan priests are very tied down, and there are so few.

God bless,
Mikey

yeah, that's what I've heard. I mean, that they're very tied down, or busy, whatever. There's so much administration work, though. Order priests (sigh, with the exception it seems, of the Carmelites) can get hired by a diocease, though.

I'm not saying anything bad about diocesean priests. I've actual only met one order priest in my life. But, from what I've heard, it seems to be so much "The heaters in the lobby are broken, let Father know." I want to care about when the last time the members of the parish had confession available to them, not so much if they can go without coats in November.
