"Come and see..."(Jn. 1.39)
"Come" first and there He will show His best designs for you; no, He will not reveal His grand plan in this noisy world full of Satan's varied distractions to darken your eyes and deafen your ears against the Good Shepherd beckoning. You must be 12-27 y/o without medical problem & w/parents living in Catholic marriage.
Traditional Teresian Carmelite Life
- the Church's school of intimate friendship with God in the same old footsteps of the great Prophet of Carmel, St. Elias, and of St. John of the Cross, St. Teresa of Jesus, and of St. Therese under the standard of the "Immaculata." "Stand ye on the ways, and see and ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS which is THE GOOD WAY, and walk ye in it: and you shall find refreshment for your souls" (Jeremias 6.16).

"Since, when the hour of reckoning comes, you will be sorry for not having used this time in the service of God, why do you not ARRANGE AND USE IT NOW as you would wish to have done were you dying?" - St. John of the Cross
There are eunuchs, who have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven. HE THAT CAN TAKE IT, LET HIM TAKE IT [see how you would displease God if you tell Him : 'I'll just serve You another way']. If you shall hear His voice, harden not your hearts.... yield yourselves to the Lord... and come to His sanctuary... serve the Lord... lest you enter not into [His] rest (Mt. 9.12; Ps. 94.8; II Paralipomenon 30.8 - Biblia Sacra Vugata Latina).
I say to the unmarried: it is good for them if they so continue even as I. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife. I would have you to be without solicitude. He that is without a wife, is solicitous for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please God (I Corinthians 7.8,26,27,32).
"I have said [enter] a monastery/Seminary of strict traditional observance [NOT OF THE 'LIBERAL' MODERNIST CORRUPTION]; because if you want to enter another, where they live more freely, it is better for you to stay at home and attend there to the salvation of your soul as well as you can; for entering an Order where the spirit is relaxed, you expose yourself to the danger of being lost."

Traditional Priestly ordination
Ordination to the Eternal Priesthood of Our Lord - the fulfillment and perfection of the Levitical priesthood of Old (Heb. 9.11 - the priesthood translated, Heb. 7.12): Neither shall there be cut off from the... Levites [reference, abolished in the "New" 'rite'] a man... to stand before... My Face... to offer to Me... the Blood [changed: "to offer the sacrificeS OF THE PEOPLE," the "New" 'potificale' providing not a Catholic priest - a minister of God - offering the One Propitiatory Sacrifice of the Eternal High Priest; but, a Protestant 'presider', a minister of an egalitarian assembly] (Jer. 33.18; Ezech. 44.15)
