It seems like it would still work out well for some contemplative communities. Maybe it’s easier to hire lay people for certain maintenance tasks, rather than have Sisters who have, as it were, a different vocation from the specific charism of the order.

It would be a little difficult, for example, if one wanted to be a nursing sister, to choose to do that as a nurse for the ill or elderly in a contemplative foundation, rather than in an order devoted particularly to medical care. For one thing, once bound by obedience, the Sister might find she wasn’t doing medical care at all, but something totally different.
