It is only fair that I update those of you who remember the news that I posted just a short time ago.
Just days into my postulancy the Superior changed his mind, and expelled me from his order, and from all communion with himself and his brothers. No opportunity to repent; no time; no counselling; just out. I think that says as much about him as anyone really needs to know; it was not about me but about his own fears.
Needless to say, this has had a very detrimental effect on my spiritual life, but I am getting through it, with Our Lady's help. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the name of the Lord.
