The easiest way for a cloistered charism to come to pass is for the founder to become a diocesan hermit. Each
diocesan hermit is their own charism, but a laura is always possible.
For instance, if one person
were attracted to our proposed Flame of Love Contemplative Institute, they could change the name to "Eremites of
the Flame of Love" and work toward consecration as a diocesan hermit. Should the one person living the charism
attract adherents, the group could either persevere to become an eremitical community or change the course for cenobitism
(monastery). Both eremitism and cenobitism can live on the same property, as some cenobitic charisms have provision
The Hermits of Blessed Herman Contractus and Leonie Martin and the Contemplatives of Life both have been reconfigured
to eremitical networks (lay associations) for both lay and consecrated hermits. At this time, both networks are comprised
of lay contemplatives.
The tier format is possible for the contemplatives as well. Such has
been utilized with the Cloisterite Family.
