Br. Marwil Maria Llasos, OFH says, "I started my journey in the Franciscan way of life originally with the Roman Catholic Secular Franciscan Order. I was admitted up to the inquirer stage. When I discerned a call to the consecrated life while remaining a layman, I joined a Dominican secular institute because I did not know of any Franciscan secular institute in my country at that time. Since I learned that I could be a consecrated person while remaining in the lay state by embracing the eremitic life, I discerned the call to be an urban ascetic. A Superior of a Franciscan religious community accepted me and vested me with the hermit’s habit. Now, I am living the life of a Franciscan hermit in the urban setting. My life is devoted to more time of prayer and contemplation. As Franciscan, I am involved in protecting the integrity of creation and promoting peace and goodwill among all God’s children."
