A crisis in religious life, not vocations

There is no true "vocations crisis" in the Church, but rather a crisis in religious life -- at least for those communities which have lost sight of why they were founded.

I would like to add that nearly all of the Sisters I have met who wear a lot of religious habit are not all shallow misfits. O:) They are lovely religious for the most part, not without their human flaws, but who would seem to have a good chance at reaching sanctity. Isn't that the whole point?

"A crisis in religious life, not vocations" Well said, Magdalen.

I have been blessed to recently know Mother _______, who has just received permission to start a new order. She is a wonderful, wise, intelligent, kind and selfless Bride of Christ.
