Postulants, India

Two new postulants, Sathya and Sujatha, entered our Community on 18th November, having completed their, ‘come and see’ phase.

The word ‘postulant’ is from the Latin ‘postulare’ meaning ‘to ask’.  For some time, the enquirers have come to experience life in the community.   Their progression to Postulancy means they are now asking to join.  This stage lasts for 6 to 12 months.

Please pray for our postulants that the Lord will be their guide as they begin this new step of discernment in Franciscan vocation.

‘So, under the Lord’s guidance, let them set out on a life of penance, knowing that we are all obliged to constant conversion of heart.’ (TOR Rule, Ch 2, n.6).
