I would like to make better use of this forum when I can for prayers, support and advice. I have read through much of it and it has been helpful. I do not yet have a community here in the Cleveland OH area. If it is God's will one day there will be one. So I would like to connect with my third order brothers and sisters here on this forum. It would be nice, if you like, to share something about yourself and any useful advice, blessings or struggles you may have so far living as a third order member. Here's mine: I'm a soon to be 45 year stay at home, homeschooling mother of 3. My oldest we just sent off to college to Franciscan University Steubenville. I have been married 19 wonderful years. In the last year or so I have discovered traditional catholicism and it has been an immense blessing in my life allowing me to grow deeper in my faith and then shortly after I believe God led me to the MFM Third Orderas an answer to a prayer, another immense blessing. My favorite saints (and spiritual directors): Our Lady of Sorrows, St Teresa of Avila, Blessed Solanus Casey and Sr Clare SHM (not a saint). My struggle as a third order novitiate is complacency. I find refocusing my gaze on Christ helpful through prayer, recollection and mental prayer, spiritual reading, relistening to a formation talk or rereading my notes or the rule of the order and making daily resolutions could also be helpful. I am still working on making these practices good habits and second nature. God bless! .

Ave Maria! I was recently vested on July 22 (as Sr Clare of the Coredemptrix of the Most Blessed Sacrament). I live in Chardon but attend a FSSP parish in Vienna, OH (Queen of the Holy Rosary). I was wondering if there were any other members in the area. I'm not sure if the member's map has been updated recently so I just thought I ask. Perhaps there's enough of us to begin a chapter. In Domino et Domina, Sr. Clare (Mitzi)

My family and I will be visiting the tomb of Blessed Solanus Casey tomorrow afternoon. Pilgrims will write petitions on paper and then leave them on his tomb. If you have any prayer requests I will be happy to write them for you and leave them on his tomb. God bless and Happy Ascension Thursday tomorrow!
