I am discerning a vocation to the Brothers and Sisters of Charity Domestic. There are many things about this group that draw me. I was converted to the Catholic faith in more than small part to the music of John Michael Talbot, specifically, his St Francis album "Troubadour of the Great King," I am also a daily practitioner of the Jesus Prayer, which they advocate. I am also deeply drawn to their blend of Franciscan/Carmelite/Benedictine lifestyle and the way in which their community has a form of "householder monasticism." This is very similar (in structure, though not worship) to the non-Christian community of which I was a part before becoming Catholic, and I am feeling like this is exactly where I belong.
I'm interested in hearing any feedback any of you might have on this organization, on John Michael Talbot, and on their "Little Portion" monastery.
