Catholic nuns and monks decline
The Vatican has reported a further dramatic fall in the number of Roman Catholic monks and nuns worldwide.

Newly published statistics showed that the number of men and women belonging to religious orders fell by 10% to just under a million between 2005 and 2006.

During the pontificate of the late Pope John Paul II, the number of Catholic nuns worldwide declined by a quarter.

Considering the abnormality of celibacy, (and there is nothing to say that women are to follow that route!), URL=http://www.ianpaisley.org/article.asp?ArtKey=celibacy>Clerical Celibacy, means that these people want to opt out of an abnormal life style, q.v., Pilgrimage From Rome. You have to be Christian to fully use the celibate lifestyle, and of course, monk and nuns aren't Christian, Is A Catholic Christian An Oxymoron?.

The Greatest Miracle Of All Is The Total Extinction of Satanic-Vaticanist/Roman-"Catholic"-Cultic "nuns" & "monks" !

Albeit, Almighty GOD'S Cry to Satanic-Vaticanist/Roman-"Catholic"-Cultic "nuns" & "monks" is still:

"...Come Out Of Her (The Satanic-Vatican/Roman-"Catholic"-Cult), My People, that Ye Be Not Partakers Of Her Sins, And That Ye Receive Not Of Her Plagues."

Revelation/Apocalypse 18:4

Well, considering the route the RCC has been going in doctrine and practice, it is no surprise there is a decline.

Absolutely right, Tony Borelli.

Those orders that discarded the veil, relaxed their rules, and moved into ordinary houses in the suburbs have collapsed. They took up popular secular causes, downplayed religion, and now they have hardly a member under 60.

Yet there are those orders (some of them newly founded) that retain all these things that the others threw away. They are overwhelmed by the numbers of young women wanting to join.

Good point Tony.
Do you think the "lure" of the world is more powerful than the RCC for western ladies, in this statistic? Or are we dealing with a condition of the human, wherein it is more responsive to a stricter lifestyle?
Are we all becoming to pampered?

Putting aside RC doctrine for the moment, let us look at the lesson to be learned here. Fifty years ago nuns lived a very austere lifestyle. They were covered in black from head to toe.They were not allowed to go out alone.They were not allowed to drive. They had no money.They worked in hospitals and schools for no pay despite their education and the income that they generated for the church.When they died their inheritance went to the church as well. Today they dress smartly, exposing their hair (which was a no-no in 1950). They travel alone, they drive (some owning their own car), they have income and can even express opinions out loud that contradict church teachings. Yet the recruitment is down, despite the fact that the church initiated these changes specifically to stem the downward spiral of vocations. Why? Because the lack of interest in vocations had nothing to do with the austere conditions! Those with a vocation, stick with it not because the living is easy, but because they feel the call of God. Now, what is the lesson to all people including Evangelicals? Simply this - we serve God when we are called to do so because it pleases Him, not because it's a cool life filled with fun, fellowship,food and music.We can't attract people by satisfying felt needs.
