If you are a Catholic man, unmarried, never married, celibate, straight, and sense that the Lord Jesus is calling you to follow Him in the footsteps of Saint Francis of Assisi, in a traditional communion, reciting the Divine Office and offering the Holy Mass solely in the ancient Roman Rite according to the traditional liturgical books of the Order, know that Br. Alexis Bugnolo is opening the doors of his hermitage for those who wish to found such a community. Ex-Friars and current Friars who want to flee their collapsing communities are also welcome to apply. Br. Bugnolo is in communion with Pope Benedict XVI and the community will be also, according to to the Second Precept of the Regula Bullata of Saint Francis, which obliges all friars “to show obedience and reverence to the canonically elected” successors of Saint Peter.

Praying for this apostolate and that many including my own sons would be called into Religious life. JMJ
Thank you! St. John Bosco said that 60% of men have a vocation to religious life, but never discover it. It is the pearl of great price hidden in the field of life.
Join me in praying for them, Aidan (18) and John (14). God bless you brother.
