Curious about joining an SSPX Monastery

You've been given some good advice above, especially with respect to making a 5 day Ignatian retreat if you can. A monastic vocation is serious business. I think the life of a monk is a lot more austere than many imagine, especially when you haven't had a Traditional upbringing. It may just be that you'll have to wait a while until you're more on your own before you can even begin to think about testing a vocation. In all honesty, having a Novus Ordo (unsupportive) family might be an obstacle. Take the next couple of years to pray, discern, and read/study (and get to a retreat, if at all possible). If God wants you to be a monk, he'll lead you to the monastery, one way or another.
