    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.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
