    Has anyone here had experience with the Plain Catholic movement? From what I have read they are faithful to the catechism of the Catholic Church, but try to live simple lifestyles in the way that Amish and conservative Mennonites do. Definitely something I would like to incorporate into my own life :)

    Interesting, but it must be kind of hard for them to be as plain as actual Amish, as Catholicism is a very sensory orientated faith, or as isolated since they're probably still reliant on a Diocese.

    They are answering God's call to vocation as they perceive it. The Benedictine principles they follow are good ones for all Catholics...

    And just as there are Benedictine monks and sisters who range from cloistered to missionaries, laypeople can adopt some of the principles of Benedictine sprituality (ora and labora, as mentioned in the website) to different degrees and in different ways.

    Catholicism is a very sensory religion, but the main example of that is the solemn calibration of the Mass
    look at the life of the common Catholic from centuries ago

    I remember someone fairly recently pointing out how our values have changed

    people used to live in simple and relatively small houses(with the exception of the very very rich) and they built grand and beautiful churches
    now it has reversed

    I would love to see some plain Catholic villages spring up . I think that is what St. Francis envisioned for his penitents .
