Discerning Secular Carmelite


I have been discerning about the Secular Carmelites, I am married. I am wondering has anyone ever considered joining an order as a secular and then decided not to continue and if so what were your reasons? I know I have to decide on my own life but I would like to hear other peoples experiences.


I started to, but then stopped after I found that the ones here mix Hindu mediation into their spirituality. :eek:


My sister-in law started but she was 'terminated" because of her health-MS. There was nothing wrong with her mind or ability to pray. Isn’t prayer what it is supposed to be all about?
