Rule of Life


Greetings Catholic Answers Forum,

I was wondering if there were any hermits that are recognized by the Church out here on Catholic Answers Forum. If so, I have a question for you. I am looking for resources on how to come up with a Rule of Life. What things do you include in the Rule of Life? How detailed does it have to be? I wanted to see if there were examples out there or if any one could refer me to some resources. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you and God Bless.

I am not a hermit, but this pdf document may give you something of a start as a resource:
