Vatican report confirms U.S. nuns are a ‘dying breed’

Not sure where these nuns are from. The source is here.

American nuns are a ‘dying breed’ an in-depth Vatican study has confirmed, prompting concern within the religious community.

The results of a three-year-long investigation released in Rome on Tuesday, told how the current workforce stands at 50,000 compared to 175,000 in the mid-sixties.

And on top of that, the average age of Roman Catholic sisters is mid-to late 70, with few young women stepping in to replace them…

    Rather like other industries, I’m afraid.

    Just a matter of days before some twisted loser “trans-gender” type tries to enlist. I’m certain of it.

    That’s one vocation you don’t see at job fairs. There are no ad’s in the paper or online job markets. Who’s to know it was so desperate? If Jihad i’s can recruit online, perhaps the Catholic Church can learn a thing or two.
    And the word of God and Christ is so much nicer than that of Mohammad. So it seems.

    Sorry, lesbians don’t have to hide anymore.

      I think that’s a big part of it.

    My Dad had a spinster aunt called Uncle Billy.
    And he has a sister among four who is a gym teacher.
    I was accepting for a long time.
    Then, one day, she came over for a visit with her partner who had too much to drink and she sprained her ankle on the front steps as she was leaving.
    She sued my Dad.
    And that’s when I said enough with the bull dykes.
    I don’t want them anywhere near me or my family.
    Self segregating lawfare cunts.

    Simple reason for that. Roman convents drew most of their recruits from women who were in need of a socially acceptable excuse not to marry—lesbians—or simply couldn’t function outside a perfectly controlled environment. They were much like the monasteries and the priesthood that way.

    The lesbians, of course, can now aspire to be premiers rather than prioresses. Women in search of a cult nowadays convert to Islam instead. The Church of Rome is out of fashion.

      Pretty much sums it up.

      It wasn’t weakling and losers who went down to the cholera docks to nurse the sick knowing full well that many would die as a result. These were people dedicated to acting according to God’s will whatever the cost. Those nuns and priests had a backbone. The problem today is more wishy washy moral relativity, novelty and outright bs. Who wants that? Give us back the narrow path and stop trying to please people.

        True I have had the good fortune of knowing several traditional Catholic nuns in my many years, and they were admirable. They were not misfits, lesbians or whatever and they earned my full respect inspite of not being Catholic. That has not been however my experience with those who threw off the traditional habit, although I am sure there must be some exceptions I have never encountered.
