I love the Franciscan charism. I love the poor, homeless etc. I also love the Sacred LITURGY, (EF preferable, but reverent NO definetly suffices!! ). I love the fact that Our LORD spoke to Our Holy Father St. Francis and told him to repair His Church. In a way I’m feeling the same call. Im named after St. Francis (Although my baptismal St. Francis was St. Francis of Xavier, at confirmation I chose St. Francis of Assisi). I love the total dedication that he had for Our LORD, the “Seraphic” love for Our LORD JESUS and nothing less. I also love the idea that he wanted to give the Faith to all, leper, clean, rich, poor, homeless, millionaire etc. I feel a slight nudge towards this kind of lifestyle. I also feel called to the Priesthood. So that is why I am seriously starting to consider the Friars of the Immaculate. I have contacted the VD for the Order in the U.S
Anyone here have any personal contact with them? I know they are VERY traditional, yet mantain an excellent balance between 5 hours of Prayer a day (SWEET) and going out to the streets and spreading the Faith of Our LORD.
Anyone here give me some info? anything?
