Ever since soon after my conversion to Catholicism I have felt a strong attraction to the Benedictine way of life. Part of me would love to become a monk but I know thats not where God is calling me and I’m ok with that. I do however think God is calling me to become an oblate of the order.
I would like to know from the Benedictine Oblates around, especially those near the Fresno, Bakersfield area, what you like about being an oblate and what I should do in discerning this call?
Thank you and God Bless,
