So, in my parish there is something very new and exciting going on - about 30 of us are beginning discernment for joining the dominican laity with one of our parish priests (a dominican parish). On November 13th we are going to receive the dominican scapulars and enter the novitiate.
Up until now there has never been a third order presence in our dom. community, so we are all pretty excited.
My fiance and I are about to get married in four weeks and we see this vocation as a wonderful way to consecrate our lives and our marriage.
So, I am interested in reading your experiences - are there married people here on the forums who are members of any third order together with their spouse? How does it reflect on your lives in your broader community? And your marriage?
