I was sent this link to the Servite Confraternity of Our Lady's Sorrows. I plan this weekend to contact them for more information on joining them. I wish to thank the kind gentlemen who sent me this link (he said he'd be watching this blog) :) I'll keep you all informed. I do believe I had heard of this group of servites in Chicago, but didn't know about the confraternity. I'm also going to inquire about the possibility of the tertiary order but don't have high hopes for this as there's no servite order in Minnesota. Normally regular meetings and spiritual direction are required for third order lay religious.
Also, I'm working on finding a way to have black scapulars made (like the one above) - not cheaply made ones either. I'm thinking that it wouldn't be too difficult to combine the black and brown scapulars so the benefits of both can be had by the wearer. Again, I'll keep you informed. I've been more than busy lately but I'm up to the task if God wills it!
