When my brother joined the Legionaries of Christ after finishing school, he disappeared from our lives. We can only visit him once a year. His superiors are even allowed to read the letters we send him. I hate them. When we were kids, we went to the summer camps of the order. But the Legionaries were strange, almost like a sect. Why did my brother choose them to be his new family? Eight years pass by before I visit him in his monastery in Connecticut. And suddenly, I am there, surrounded by 80 men in strange clothing. I see how they live — how they pray, eat, pray, go to class, pray. And I get my brother back — finally.
