First Day of Postulancy

Today our new brothers enter the postulancy. Though it's the least meaningful of the various incorporations one goes through in entering religious life on the canonical level, in some ways it is the heaviest transition on the personal, existential level. It's the beginning, and the actual, physical entrance, the 'moving in' to the community.

So in your charity offer a prayer for the peace, discernment, and perseverance of our new brothers. At least one that I know of, Matt of Be Thou My Vision, can be expected to blog his experience.
