Quo vado, Domine?

No, that is not a typo. The title means "Where am I going, Lord?" Things have not been resolved in my struggles since I took this website offline a while back. I am still trying to discern where God wants me, and Carmel, more specifically in Wyoming, seems to continually call me. Why, you ask me, do you wish to leave the world when so many men are needed? I wish to leave so that I may be used for whatever God wishes to use me for. In the monastery, enclosed from the cares and concerns of the world, I can offer a life of prayer and intercession for those working on the outside. Just as Saint Therese, though she spent her whole spiritual life within Lisieux, became a patron of the missions, I too can pray for those who strive to restore the Church in the face of Modernism and the numerous heresies that followed. Only my debt hangs over me, and if I am able to do something about it...

Oremus pro invicem!
