Hello BrotherJR. I was reading one of your posts and noticed you are a Franciscan, so just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a Postulant with the Franciscans of San Damiano (FSD), a young (18 y.o.) Third Order Regular order based in the Diocese of Albany, NY. The FSD believe in active evangelization in the world, most of us do not live communally although that is certainly an option. I'm the only member in Southern California right now, so I'm kind of the "point man" for vocations here.
Anyway nice to find you here, and God bless!
Peace and all good, Brother. I wanted to know if you would help a young Jewish man that is drawn to Catholicism? He's getting mixed information, and if you're willing, I think you can give him great advice: http://forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=614635
