    Happy Easter everyone! My name's Robert. American, 32.

    I'm pretty new to tradition. I was a Novus Ordo seminarian the last ten years and was two years from their diaconate.  I've been studying tradition for a year and a half and have only broken away from the Novus Ordo last August.

    My main reason for posting here is to ask for your prayers. I still feel called to the priesthood and hope to be able to enter the SAJM seminary in September. But since I don't know anyone in the resistance I might have to spend a year with them somewhere for them to get to know me. I did get do a retreat with the Dominicans of Avrille (amazing). I've been attending SSPX chapels since there are no resistance chapels near me (Florida). I really don't want to have to spend another year waiting to enter seminary but maybe it's what I need. Not my will but God's be done. Please keep me in your prayers.

    Also please pray for an apostolic initiative that keeps coming up in prayer to reach out to Novus Ordo folk I know. I'm not sure if God wants me to reach out now while I'm still connected to a lot of people or to wait until I'm stronger in tradition.

    For all of you who pray for the poor sheep in the Novus Ordo, thank you! There were several moments last year when I was wrestling with the arguments of tradition where it came to my mind that someone was praying for me.

    Happy Easter!

    P.S. (Cadarin is a masculine form of Catherine that I made up since my name was taken. I love St. Catherine and pray we get another humble daughter of Dominic like her in the future.)
    Can you speak French?

    PS: I just sent you a PM.

  • I can read French slowly - I'm studying it now. I know Italian and Spanish though.

    Welcome!

    It's wonderful that you are hoping to enter the SAJM seminary in September. That's not so long from now really.

    What I like most about the Dominicans of Avrille and the four bishops is their high level of integrity and charity in defense of Tradition. That's not an easy thing to maintain. In this the Dominicans of Avrille are true sons of St. Dominic, and the only traditional order of Dominicans that I know of.

    Regarding reaching out to Novus Ordo folk, well, are you familiar with Fr. Chazal? He has a little Resistance seminary in Cebu city, Philippines.
    The main group that he reaches out to are the Novus Ordo Catholics there. Even if you are not so strong in tradition, you likely have the basics down, and that's what counts. It's okay to not know everything.

    It is a good idea to pray for the Novus Ordo sheep. I'll be praying for you, too.

    Have you contacted Bp. Zendejas? You can get his contact info by PMing the forum owner here.

    Please steer clear of Boston Kentucky. Not an option.
