disciples of the cenacle

My friend did go to visit them- they are in Italy, near Rome. I forget the exact name of the town but it is online somewhere. She said there are around 15-17 women, between the ages of 18-70’s. They are very devout (full habit of course) and say the traditional office and daily traditonal mass. Their main language is Italian, though they have nuns from other countries who are learning Italian.Some of them rotate to a nearby SSPX seminary where they do housework and such. I did not get any other specific apostolate from her other than SISINONO, which is not a big part of what they do. They follow the rules of poverty. From what she said I would rate them as semi-cloistered; wtih old-style rules about contact wtih relatives and such, however, they apparently are not rigid about that, but I am guessing about that. My friend did not have access to a computer the whole time, though she did not ask either.

They do take older women (by that I mean over 50) and excellent health is not required. Other than that, one must research on one’s own.

As for her, she decided not to enter. But she thought they were “wonderful” people.

Dose anyone here know anything about the Briggitine SErvitores in Tyler Texas? Connectedt to FSSP

About morningprayer

I am a convert living in central Florida, attending an independent traditional Catholic Church in Orlando. Converted in 2001. Immediately felt vocation, which really I had felt for years before but world got in the way of converting. I was 54 at the time. Searched 15 years for place to live vocation, expensive and painful, much travelling. . Now 70. No real trad order or convent for older women. I get it in a way, but in a way don't get it. Still working on my hurt and how "unfair" it is, but I'll get over it. I guess. I guess I'm supposed to be a hermit-like person. My church 43 miles one way, and I can't always drive there on I-4. Mass including the drive is a 5- hour thing, per the traffic and getting there on time. Look, this sounds self-pity, but really I'm just trying to adjust to being "old". Which I don't feel....Anyway, there are NO trad Catholics nearby. So I read and meditate and watch some homilies online and so on. It's going to be OK. I'm trying to let go of worldly promises and material things, as well as my desires and demands, hear only HIs voice. Please pray for me, as I for you.
