So, as you all have seen, I’m currently a teenager in high school discerning a vocation to the holy priesthood. I know that I’d like to belong to an order or a certain fraternity because I feel that, with that charism, I’d be able to more effectively do God’s work as a religious priest, rather than diocesan. The thought of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter has popped into my head, as I watched their seminary YouTube videos and the life seems very rigorous, but also very attractive to me. Tradition is very big for me, and for a lot of young people today, and I believe that it is tradition that will attract young people, not modern, watered down theology and liturgies. I do not attend the Latin Mass regularly, nor do I know most of what is going on when I rarely attend one, but I know that if I were to become a priest, no matter the order, I’d like to learn to celebrate it. It truly brings to life the mystical union of heaven and earth, and makes the sacrifice of Christ more visibly present, in my opinion, than any ‘versus populum’ Mass could. Does anyone know anything about the life of the FSSP priests? Does anyone know any FSSP priests who are good, holy ones, different from most? Are they in communion with the Church? Any information, not coming from the website, helps, as I’ve already read their website information.
Thanks for all of your answers as always,
