The more I've been reading, and praying the more I think I might be called to a monastic life/apostolic life. What I mean by that is I still want to live in a community, pray the Divine Office, celebrate mass daily, ect but I'd also love to teach as well (if possible theology at a college).
Does anyone know of a benedictine abbey, or other order that runs a college or maybe a high school but also lives in a community??
Just to let you know a little background about myself, I consider myself a traditionalist thus going to a "progressive" abbey wouldn't be the best idea:blush:..
I did give you some information in my last post but I though about this a bit more.
I do not really believe there is a calling to monastic and apostolic life as found in a monastery. Yes they do some of what you are looking for and I provided links but....
I think a better fit would me a mendicant community as they live the common life and celebrate the Hours and have daily Mass in community. You would need to find one that has teaching as a part of their ministry but that should not be too hard to do.
I think you might wish to look at your "traditionalist" views and see what you might be able to live with.
I would suggest that you visit with different communities even if you would at first write them off. You never know where God might be calling you.
