At the Society of Prayer, we offer something very different. Many of those who are privately vowed have absolutely no place to go. The convents are closed to them. The doors are shut to them. They want to remain vowed but have no sense of belonging.
Here at the Society of Prayer, we offer a chance to belong. But we offer something even more than that. If one belongs to our order and stays in our order, that individual is oftentimes required to be more dedicated than those that are within an established and canonical order. Why do I say this? Because to be in our order you must remain solely out of total dedication to God, not out of pride, not to look for a relationship, not to chat with others. This is one of our key differences. You must remain because you and you alone wish to dedicate your life to prayer and mercy. There are no perks aside from what comes from God and God alone.
Our vowed members wish to remain private, some of them with high prestige but a very dedicated spirit. We offer no chat rooms or groups to argue and to cause division. Each person runs their own hermitage as according to their own rule of life. A rule of life may go beyond what we require and often does.
However, just because we are alone in our rooms, isolated from the other members, does not mean we do not pray for each other. This is what I meant by a higher level of dedication being required. This is not for everyone. But rest assured, if you remain in our order, your reward will be far greater than you can imagine.
May God richly bless all of you, as you dedicate your life to Jesus Christ, to prayer and to daily acts of mercy.
