Keep up with the crazy

Influential nun calls for 'non-violent resistance' against Vatican apostolic visitation

most women's religious orders have found an entirely new way of living their vocations since Vatican II. "So, let's be what we are," she writes: "Religious who are not cloistered and ministers who are not ordained."

I'm glad the Vatican is looking at the communities as a priority. Late, but looking. I can't imagine some of these communities lasting more than another 30 or so years(dying out). I think a scientific and honest census of new vocations and stability would be very interesting at this time.
