Hello everyone, this is my first post here!
I have been considering possible vocations with both Opus Dei and the Order of Preachers. I am unsure at this point as to whether or not God is calling me to the priesthood... so I have been pursuing activities with Opus Dei recently.
This is a hypothetical question, but would it be possible for an Opus Dei supernumerary to later enter the Dominican Order (as a novice)?
Thank you. Pax tecum!
Et Cum Spiritu Tuo!
Yes, as Opus Dei is not a religious order, it's a personal prelature, and do not ordain themselves (apart from by invitation by the superior general), members of Opus Dei are laymen and women, Secular Priests, some religious priests, I am unsure if Religious Brothers and Sisters could join Opus Dei, incase there is a conflict between the spirituality, you'ld have to consult your superior.
