Reflections on the Religious Habit


Full title: Reflections on the Religious Habit and the Year of Consecrated Life written by a Carmelite prioress.

There have been some very interesting comments from religious about their habits – and cloth – on another public forum.

October 13 is the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima. Our organization’s website page dedicated to the habit has historically shown a high rate of ‘traffic’ on that feast.

This year, as most of you know, hubby and I suffered the loss of our youngest son. Yesterday was our 26th wedding anniversary. We offered our sufferings for an increased interest in the habit on the part of non-habited religious.



What a great article!

I’m sorry about your son, I will say a prayer for him.
