Perpetual Virgins in the Novus Ordo

  • The following article appeared in my Saturday newspaper in Canada.
    If the NO can do it, does the SSPX or any priest in tradition promote it?
    Not all women can join convents, taking care of aging parents might be one reason, so
    does tradition promote this?

  • I've never heard of it being "promoted", but I have heard it mentioned that some people are called to the single life.

    None of them were appropriately dressed  :fryingpan:

  • A good example might be St. Kateri Tekakwitha.

  • It apparently can be a state of life, but can it be considered a vocation?

    Traditionally, "vocation" applies to the clerical state, or for men and women, vows of celibacy tied to a religious order (brothers or monks, and sisters or nuns). After Vat.II the concept that marriage can be a "vocation" was promoted, but that was an innovation after the (unclean) spirit of Vat.II.
    .
    A lot of confusion was introduced by liberal theology consequent to this deplorable aberration known as Vat.II.

  • Good question about vocation.  I have met several Catholic people who have told me they feel no desire to marry.  They hadn't been "scarred" by any experience, didn't seem selfish, just didn't feel "called" to marry.

    I think the difference is if you choose not to marry for the sake of GOD, rather than lack of means, opportunity, or desire; believing that God is "calling" you to a single life in the world as opposed to just ending up that way.  Not sure if you could really refer to that as a vocation in the traditional sense of the word.

    It is a calling from God.
