Their numbers have plummeted from about 180,000 in 1965 to 56,000 last year, according to the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate. Their average age is now above 70. Many orders go for years without any new candidates.

Interesting that their numbers began to plummet at about the same time that Vatican II was fully mis-implemented. I guess the women were more interested in devoting their life to Jesus rather than liberation theology and folk Masses.

Exactly-—the Church became irrelevant after the Marxists infiltrated and socialized their messages of “Marxist social justice—as if it can exist”, tolerance to sin, and adopt the Marxist radical egalitarianism which makes human beings into godless animals who can be interchangeable-—no roles for man and women—no Design in human beings. Girls can be altar boys....etc., cr*pola. Feminize the Church—show that women and men are the exact same, contrary to science and logic.

It is a disaster what the Marxist infiltration did to the Catholic Doctrine and how it enshrined sin and Godless Marxism to such an extent it allowed molestation of children.

The Church has to get back to its doctrines of subsidiarity and that charity can never be given by centralized governments. Their Marxists beliefs have to be expunged-—the idea that governments are good for “universal health care” , etc. They should know better and teach the Truth.

Shocking, huh?

I was born in ‘62, so there were still a few old-school sisters teaching when I went through CCD. The difference between the sisters and lay teachers was dramatic. Catholic kids today are missing out. Expose your young kids to EWTN and Catholic Answers as they get older.

On a positive note, the orthodox orders are flourishing.
