    I don't think anybody expects that the orders of women's religious that comprise the LCRW will survive more than another couple of decades.

    The various charitable pursuits that they engage in will no doubt continue as secular endeavors, which many have already largely become. Is this a bad thing? I don't think so. Do you honestly expect that they would turn their enterprises over to the priests, who would no doubt loot them to support their languid lifestyles and pay off their abuse victims? Not likely.

    If those remaining women's religious orders that remain primarily cloistered and contemplative grow and thrive, so much the better. They are not usually allied with the LCRW.

    What benefit to the small, ruling cadre of reactionary, traditionalist priests by picking a fight with the LCWR? You're going to have a hard enough time just maintaining your own existence.
