Please join the Friars in welcoming a new man to share our way of life: Paul, age 24, from Geneseo, New York. Paul is a 2012 graduate of DeSales University (Center Valley, Pennsylvania) and has spent the past year as a missionary with Generation Life (www.generationlife.org/).
Paul is a postulant with our community. Postulancy is that period of time set aside as the “first step” in Religious Life. As a man makes the move from living in the world to living his life more perfectly for God, this first year of formation is ultimately focused on helping him better understand and listen more attentively to the call of Jesus in his life: “Come, follow me.” In addition to living our daily schedule by praying, working and recreating side-by-side with the friars, the postulant takes part in formation classes which instruct him in the spirituality of St. Francis of Assisi and the charism of Mother Angelica, and familiarize him with the mission of our apostolate here at EWTN and with the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration. He will also spend time each day focusing on the basic elements of the spiritual life, the fundamentals of the Catholic Faith and the disciplines of Religious Life in general.
Please remember Paul in your prayers.
Fr. Anthony & the Friars
