Trials of Religious Life

Fr. Brian Mullady, O.P., from the Western Province, has written an article on the difficulties and imperfections one will find in community life.  There are many trials that one not only faces from one's own weakness, but also from other members of the community.  These challenges are real, but the growth in charity takes a lot of work.  But since growth in charity is the end of religious life, it's worth the effort to be a rock in the can being made smooth by the other rocks.

Please pray for brothers in formation that they may grow in charity and persevere as they begin a new academic year.
