Nuns, a ‘Dying Breed,’ Fade From Leadership Roles at Hospitals

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/21/us/21nuns.html

The leadership shift has stirred angst in many Catholic hospitals about whether the values imparted by the nuns, concerning the treatment of both patients and employees, can withstand bottom-line forces without their day-to-day vigilance. Although their influence is often described as intangible, the nuns kept their hospitals focused on serving the needy and brought a spiritual reassurance that healing would prevail over profit, authorities on Catholic health care say.

Comment by Adamantine:

This is an example of the great work that MANY Catholics have performed FOR JESUS in this world. I do not think they will lose their reward when He returns.

This has always been the problem with God’s churches. The tares are mixed with the wheat. In the case of the Catholic church the political structure has rewarded tares that have often  caroused with the King’s of the earth. When the world finally gets done abusing it’s lover and kicks the stuffing out of the catholic Church then I suggest look out spiritual bride of Christ.

The world and Satan will then hate and seek to destroy that much smaller portion of the church that will not align itself with the  purposes and sin of the world. Many from the Roman Catholic church will suffer as they too were wheat.

The loss of the nuns in the Catholic church may be a sign of the increasing worldliness of the church. The true believing wheat among the nuns will not lose their reward.

  1. The good work that the Catholic Church has been doing for orphans for many years is under attack here in Illinois where I live.

    Yet another reason I’d add my home state to the places in our country that are jumping up and begging for the Lord’s judgement. I pray daily that our leaders would relent from this and return to path of wisdom and fear of the Lord.

    God’s churches? Really? Wow, then I must really be off. However, I pray the nun in pictured in your post can share the same testimony for herself as this dear saint of God, Sister Charlotte.

    It makes me very happy knowing that we can agree to disagree within the walls of this site; that we are forever learning and coming to the knowledge of the truth, however way the Lord choose to manifests that truth in the hearts of those who seek after Him.

    The Jesuits rake in over $280 million annually. The assets of Grey Nuns of Charity $3.5 million; Sisters of the Immaculate Heart $7.5 million; Sisters of Saint Joseph of Newark $17,899,384; Little Sisters of the Poor $25 million; Sisters of Mercy $39,754,132; Sisters of Charity $66,533,833; Sisters of Charity of Providence $90,187,000; Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother $93,636,516 (love that one); Sisters of the Holy Cross $110,892,759.

    “17 Wherefore come out from among them, and separate yourselves, saith the Lord, and touch none unclean thing, and I will receive you.
    18 And I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6

    Yes I would tell anyone who has an ear to hear to come out of the Catholic Church but also the Episcopal Church,the ELCA and a good number of others. My point is that there has been wheat in the Roman Catholic Church and some of those I think certainly will receive a reward for good works if they also trusted in Christs work for salvation.
    There is many a local non Catholic church run by a leadership that would have rivaled the Borgia’s had the opportunity availed itself. Instead their sin was limited by the limitations of their power. God knows the heart.
