Pakistani Cloister

Not all aging religious orders with few or no newcomers are those that work in the world. This cloistered contemplative community in Pakistan hasn’t had a postulant in a decade.

Too much glee, and possibly misinformation for those who seem to be cheering the supposed ascent of some orders they favor and the decline of others they detest. When conservative Catholics lament the decline of good ol’ sisters who worked for peanuts, kept quiet, and did as they were told, I’m not so sure they’re not sorry that the ocean doesn’t always consist of wavecrests.

    How does that compare with the “pantsuited” religious orders in Pakistan?

    Oh, that’s right, there are none.
