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.
