Introduction: LRThunder

Friday, January 09, 2009


I'd like to introduce myself. My name is John, although I'll be using LRThunder as my name here. I joined the Church two years ago this Easter. I joined the blog to learn about how others have discerned their vocation, rather it was to the priesthood or the religious life.

Right now, I have started discerning a vocation to the priesthood. In addition to my diocese, I have also looked at information about the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, and the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius.

I'll post updates whenever something happens regarding my discernment. I'll pray for although discerning vocations and also pray for those in formation.

As the Creator of Holy Vocations Blog, welcome.

Since you are looking into the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, I must ask if you are a native of Chicagoland?

No, I am not a native of the Chicago area. I do like the Extraordinary Form of the Mass, even though I have only been to a couple so far (two at my parish so far with more in the coming year).

If you are looking at the FSSP or Canons Regular, then I would recommend the "Traditional Vocations" resources blog to you:

I hope to apply to the FSSP too.

God bless,

Just so you know, being newly baptized is an impediment for ordination (see Canon 1042). I have seen in some Dioceses that one must be baptized (or received) into the Church at least 5 years before being admitted into the seminary. I would suggest you appreciate, learn, and pray about your first vocation - that of a baptized Catholic - and all that means.
