Traditional Catholic Communities - kzarah - 12-29-2009

I don't know if any one else relates to this, but I would totally relate moving into some kind of Trad Catholic community.  I am called to the single life however, the secular world is a constant tease to me.  If only I could live in a community that would shelter me fro the secular world. 
Does anyone else feel this way?

Not sure when the following was written. It seems to me Welwyn has grown since .
At the SSPX links there are contact numbers etc.

Canada's Village of Welwyn in Saskatchewan
Has Become a Small Community of Traditional Catholics
The Village of Welwyn, Saskatchewan, has become the destination of choice for a small group of families following traditional Catholicism. In the last few years, several families have moved from all over Canada to this community, located 30 kilometres north of the Trans-Canada Highway near the Manitoba boundary. The families have concluded that the Second Vatican Council waters down the Church's teachings and have come together to raise their children. They bought and renovated an old hall, which now serves as their church, where traditional Catholic services are conducted in Latin by a priest who travels from Winnipeg every second weekend. They also operate their own private school.

The families have restored older houses and built new ones. They have also brought forty children into the village of 146, which had no children before. Welwyn is between Rocanville and its nearby potash mine, and Moosomin. The families are striving to become self-sufficient, raising their own livestock and planting large gardens. [Source: Canada]

I know, man. It's not like we have to be salt and light, or leaven to society or stuff like that.

A place where single Catholics desiring to live a life of devotion leave the world and live in community? I think those are called cloisters  :)

I think we should all strive to make whatever community we live in trad catholic through prayer and penance.

Yes, I have been feeling this way a lot lately.  I have had a strong feeling of being under attack and not fitting into the modern world.  So much around me seems so wrong.

I talked to my spiritual director about it and he told about an old poster from England during WWII.  It said "Keep calm and carry on."  As I thought about it, I realized just how appropriate it was.  These people were having bombs dropped on them all the time which is just how I feel spiritually.  The point of these attacks was and is to disrupt life and destroy morale.  And we must resist.  Our response needs to be just what the old poster said:  "Keep calm and carry on"

Each of us is called to the duties of our state of life.  We need to carry on doing those duties.  It doesn't matter if the bombs that attempt to distract us are physical or spiritual.  We don't let them stop us.  We keep going.
