That's very cool. Good luck (you are in my prayers). I'm sending a letter of inquiry to Mount Michael Benedictine Abbey. I think they accept long distant Oblates.
I didn't know you could be an Oblate and a Third Order Franciscan. :confused:
Thank you so much. You will love it. So orthodox and traditional. Reading the Rule every day, and particularly praying Lauds and Vespers keeps me grounded. Please let me know (either here or via PM) how it turns out for you. Prayers offered :)
I believe that you can be both....
To be clear: I have no interest really in being a Third Order (SFO). I just love Francis and Padre Pio a lot and wouldn't mind "hearing" from them, too. :)
