I have discerned for some years now a call to religious life. I believe I am called. I feel drawn to the Trappist way of life (prayer and manual labor - the labor time being a relative good amount, not between two or three hours like some other contemplative orders) and a traditional liturgy such as the Traditional Latin Mass. Then I go look up, research after research, to see where there might be a trappist way of life with a traditional liturgy available and there is only ONE in the entire world! Isn't there something wrong with that? Do I, from the United States, have to travel to Germany? I am just upset and confused. It doesn't make any sense.

If you are too committed to what you want, no order will work for you. Whatever order God is calling you to, if He is calling you to one, will fail to meet your expectations one way or another. Learning that early will help you in the long run.

I will keep that in mind. Thanks Fr.

It's still there, Siggy. Whether they do TLM or the EF, though, I have no idea.
