Women In Habits

Oh, wow!  What order is this?  :)

 


Mater,

 

I'm so sorry - I totally forgot to put the name!  The majority of the photos I get of the different habits come from Seraficos blogger site, "Divinas Vocaciones."

 

There, there are literally hundreds of Roman Catholic orders and communities, all with distinctive habits - I puruse them from time to time to read up on their histories and charisms and occassionally I'll swipe a photo to share on here. 

 

I'll try finding the name for you - and the veil is actually a tone of red.

Misioneros Eucharisticos de Cristo Misericordioso y Victima ??

 

Is this the name of the order with the red veils??

 


I can only glean some meaning from Spanish, but it looks like the Misioneros Eucharisto de Cristo Misericordioso y Victima are male and the Misioneras Contmemplativas de Cristo Misericordioso are contemplative women associated with the men. However, those nuns have red habits and the above nuns have white habits along with the red veil.  Someone who could actually read Spanish could probably clear this up better than I.

 

Mater Misericordiae must have been typing as I was. Here is a link to an article on the Siervas  del  Señor  de  la Misericordia.

You glean pretty well, Lumiere.

 

The Misioneros Eucarísticos de Cristo Misericordioso y Víctima are men. In English I would translate Eucharistic Missionaries of the Merciful and Victim Christ.

 

This is the google translation of the Spanish page on them in Divinas Vocaciones Religiosas Blog:

Their feminine counterpart are contemplatives: Misioneras Eucharísticas de Cristo Misericordioso y Víctima, which I would translate, Eucharistic Missionary Sisters of the Merciful and Victim Christ.

You have their picture in the link above, and their habit is totally red.

 

These are different from the picture posted before by Libcath2000 of the Siervas del Señor de la Misericordia, that is Servant Sisters of the Lord of Mercy, on white habits and red veils, the feminine counterpart of the Siervos del Señor de la Misericordia -or Servants of the Lord of Mercy (religious institute of men).

 

The Servant Sisters of the Lord of Mercy are not contemplative but dedicated like the men to the works of mercy.

 

Here you have their website -in Spanish. I'm posting below the links to the google translation of their website:

Sorry for sending some of you on a wild goose chase last time by forgetting to include the community name along with the photo!

 

To make it up, here's some interesing nuns . . . Camaldolese hermits to be precise . . . known as the Romualdines of Mary . . .

BTW . . . as an aside, the white hooded tunic with the brown scapular seems to be quite popular with a number of orders and communities . . . wonder who wore it first :think:

I find it interesting that some of the Romauldines have their scapulars rounded at the ends.  I wonder why this is - I can only guess the edges got tattered and in the name of poverty they rounded them. Anyone got an actual answer?

 

Edited to add: they also have a pocket right on the front of the scapular - don't think I've ever seen an outer pocket.

I noticed the very same thing . . . at first I thought the rounded ends on the scapulars indicated a different stage of formation . . . but I'm sure that's wrong . . . but I really have no idea why there is such a difference . . .

Simply beautiful! I met one of the SSVM Sisters today at the March for Life.  She was so nice and joyful   :saint2:

 

Yeah, really beautiful!

I know many of them personally...they are lovely!

I don't know if this picture has already been posted, but it is one of my personal favorites!

 

It is a Passionist Novice, Kentucky

She (Sr. Cecilia Maria) will have her first profession a week from today, on February 2!

Wow, I remember when they announced that Sr. Cecilia Maria would make her first profession, it seemed like it was so far away, now it's next week! Time flies. She'll be out of the novitiate then. Perhaps a PMer will be a postulant there, soon!
