Actually, there are some people who get very ill if they don't eat meat. Okay, they are few and far between, that's why any and all generalisations should be avoided. Meat is available. We choose if we want to eat it or not. 

 

There was quite a debate following the posting of the pic with the deer.......

If Sisters eat meat I think it is more honest to be prepared to trap/shoot/butcher it yourself than leaving the 'nasty' bits of the process to someone else.

 

Is is because you object to meat or is it because it was a deer? How would you feel if it were an alligator?

 

This community have deer on their land. Those deer need to be managed, what better way to fulfil the vow of Poverty? And why would it be any worse that this was 'a Sister' than if it was the local huntsman?

 

In my community we had total abstinence, but for those Sisters exempted ( for health reasons) we kept rabbits. I found nothing wrong at all in dispatching of them.

 

I'm one such person.  I tried to be a vegan/vegetarian several years ago and I was left feeling tired and sick all the time.  It turns out, I get pernicious anemia if I don't eat animal products because my body lacks B-12.  Sometimes, I have to supplement with sublingual tablets when I get low.   It runs in my family, apparently, as well as hypothyroidism.  I don't eat red meat very often, but I love chicken and fish.  Venison is one of my favorite lean meats, too.  We use it in place of hamburger when my uncles go hunting and bring back the deer meat in bulk.

Habit on the right, really nice. Wish there were a men's version. Cistercians come pretty close I guess. 

 

I know this Order well. They are Nuns of Perpetual Adoration, founded by Blessed Mary Magdalene of the Incarnation.  They have Monasteries around the world - Italy (where they were founded), Spain, Austria, Germany, Kenya, the Holy Land (Bethlehem), Mexico, South America, and four in the United States - two in El Paso, Texas, one in San Francisico, CA, and one in Sioux Falls, SD. Their habit is white with a red scapular.  

 

There are Monks affiliated with them.  They were founded in 1991 in Mexico and now have several Monasteries in Mexico (three, I believe).  Their habit is similar to the Nuns, white tunic, but with a burgundy scapular. They are a public association of the faithful.

Immersion is the best way to learn!  :)  I believe a few of them speak English.

Maybe after a few years you can bring them to the United States.
