Fr Jim Norris was one Priest that helped discern the way to greater love, and it's true meaning to me. There are different ways of course, free will is part of God's design for the human race and we often ask why. Fr Kelly, said "because God wants human beings not mules". You have to read that with an Irish accent.
The monastic life and my experiences is something I will have to write about. Stability is my pet subject at the moment.

Pope Francis' Mass in the Casa Sanctae Marthae 28 April
How your funny little self gets in the road, obscuring the
infinite. And how full of human respect you are – what is man that you should
fear his opinion? Why should you fear to have the truth about yourself known
among men? You are only a frail human being and a sinner. Ah! Throw overboard
all this ridiculous vanity and consideration of earthly things. Please men only
because by so doing you shall please God. Die to yourself. Care not what men
think of you – good or bad reports. Work only for God, trusting in Him. He will
never leave you. Don’t think of yourself – no matter what God does to you. You
must appear before men as the manifestation of God’s goodness – as a shining
light and a beacon showing your Christ.
