In Catholicism, a nun who made a female monastic solemn vows (the male equivalent is a “monk”) has. Nuns are cloistered to the degree of the rule of the religious institution they enter gegründet.In the Roman Catholic tradition, there are a number of different orders of nuns each with its own charism or Sonderzeichen.Im general, when a woman enters a convent it first undergoes a first test phase, the life, known as a postulate, for a period of six months to a year. If them, and determine the order that they might have a vocation to the life, she receives the habit of the order (usually with some modification to make them told of nuns differ) and assumes the novitiate, a period of living the life of a nun without even vows that lasts one to two years. After this time they can their first temporary vows. Temporary vows last one to three years, typically, and will be professed for not less than three years and not more than six. Finally, they will make their petition “perpetual profession”, with permanent promise feierlich.In the various branches of the Benedictine tradition (Benedictines, Cistercians, Camaldolese, and Trappists among others) nuns take vows of stability (that is, a member of a single monastic community remain), obedience (to an abbess or prioress), and “conversion of life” (the ideas of poverty and chastity). The “Poor Clares” (a Franciscan) and those Dominican nuns led a college life take the threefold vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Most orders of nuns not listed here follow one of these two patterns, with some orders at an additional vow related to the specific nature of the work or of their order (eg, to a certain style of devotion, praying for a specific intention purpose or commit). nuns (eg Carmelites) observe “papal enclosure” rules and their monasteries typically have walls and grilles separating the nuns from the outside world. The nuns rarely leave (except for medical necessity, or occasionally for purposes related to their contemplative life) though they in specially built parlors that allow them to meet with outsiders. Visitors They are usually self-sufficient, earning money by selling jams or candies or baked goods by mail order or by liturgical items (vestments, candles, bread for Holy Communion). Sometimes they undertake contemplative ministries-that is a monastery of nuns is often associated with prayer for some particular good or supporting the missions of another order by prayer (for instance, the Maryknoll order includes a monastery of nuns, for the work the prayer missionary priests, brothers and sisters, the sister Disciples of the Divine Master are nuns who pray in support of the religious sisters of the Daughters of Saint Paul in their media services, the Dominican nuns of Corpus Christi Monastery in the Bronx, NY, pray in support the priest of the Archdiocese of New York). canoness A is a nun who corresponds to the male equivalent, a canon. The origin and rules of monastic life are common to both. As with the canons, differences were in compliance with the rule to two types: canons regular and secular Kanons.Eine nun who elected to take their monastery is called an abbess if the monastery is a monastery, a prioress if it is a priory , or more generally, as the Mother Superior and styled “Reverend Mother” are referred to. The distinction between abbey and monastery has used the terms of a particular order or by the level of independence of the monastery to do. Technically, a convent is any home of a community of sisters-or, indeed, used by priests and brothers, though this term is rarely in the United States, the term “monastery” is often used by communities within the Benedictine family, and ” convent “(when it comes to a monastery) is often used of the monasteries of certain other orders.
