In the link below, Sister Mary Rose Reddy of The Daughters of Mary, Mother of Healing Love talks about the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, and its relationship with the Vatican.

Nun Reveals Truth About LCWR Assessment | Courageous Priest.

I especially linked her words describing the vocation of women religious:

Having been a professed religious Sister for more than 29 years I welcome this statement of the Holy See.  We, the Daughters of Mary, Mother of Healing Love (along with hundreds and probably thousands of other women religious), do not feel at all represented by the LCWR.  We consider that the vocation of women religious is to personify the Church as Bride.  The Bride is submissive to Christ, the Head (as particularly represented by the Pope and the magisterium).  Through this powerful charism of submissive obedience, entrusted particularly to women religious in imitation of the exalted Mother of God, the life of Christ is brought to birth and nurtured in multitudes of hearts.  Thank you, Pope Benedict XVI and the Holy See for protecting the authentic charism of women religious which we receive as an eternal gift from Christ the Bridegroom.

HERE is the link to The Daughters of Mary, Mother of Healing Love Facebook page.  A quick search did not find their webpage, if they have one.

A good order of women religious are the Sisters of Saint John.  My teenage daughter has visited one of their convents.

Another good one is the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.  This order has gone from four sisters to over one hundred in, I believe, fifteen years.

Catholic Orthodoxy is a power and dynamic force.

  1. Another growing orthodox religious order is the Sisters of Life whose mandate is to help women with troubled pregnancies so that they don’t abort their babies. Their Mother House is in New York. http://sistersoflife.org/
