Does anyone know of any active, and traditional religious Orders for men of those listed above ?
They need not be located in the US, but I am curious if there are perhaps some which allow
for home visits at most, once a year. I know that the Benedictine Monks of Norcia allow for
ten day home visits, and fit the bill in so far as everything else I am looking for in a religious
community (Both forms of the liturgy, traditional, but flexible, sound formation etc.), but to be
frank, I do not know whether Cassino is the right fit for me. People usually peg me as a
Carmelite, but given my desire to be somewhat active in the world, or at most have the occasional home visit, I do not see how that would be possible through Carmel.
Curiously, the Saints which have so aided me in my discernment, are St. Joseph (A most
patient, devoted, and faithful advocate.), St.Anthony of Padua, and St.John of the Cross. I
am not sure one what the relationship between the three necessarily is, but that is the point I
am at in my discernment currently.
