I’ve been discerning a vocation to religious life and am praying that I find a community that is a good fit for me. However, due to college debt and a medical condition that may or may not be chronic, I might not be able to enter a religious community. It’s not completely hopeless, but I still feel like I should have a plan B so to speak.
So I’ve been looking into third orders and possibly lay consecrated virginity.
Is anyone here a consecrated virgin or has any experience with lay consecrated life?
I know some of you are members of Third Orders, and I would love to here about them!
Thanks and blessings!
