That was St. Teresa of Avila. She was the friend of St. John of the Cross.

A nun is a religious woman under solemn vows living a cloistered, contemplative life in a monastery. Their primary vocation is the service of God in the Divine Office, which can take up to six and half hours a day to sing properly, and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Usually nuns do some other work …which can be done in the monastery such as sewing vestments or altar linens, baking altar breads, etc. This is entirely different from a Sister who is a religious woman under perpetual or renewing vows, who lives in the world and usually teach, nurse, or assist in parishes. Confusingly, they are both addressed as "Sister" but have entirely different vocations, and are completely different under Canon law. ( Full Answer )

Canaan, part of Israel , was the Biblical (Promised land) it is also identified with the Biblical Wedding at Cana-probably the same place or a neighboring province, this was the site where Christ turned water to wine, his first public miracle. I have never heard of a Kan-an as you spell it religious… order unless this is someting perhaps in the Coptic protocols. There is no such Roman Catholic or Russian Orthodox order by this name, there doesn"t seem to be a reason for it-Canaan or Cana associatd with a. Israel and B. Weddings-thje Catholics have capitalized the word Cana to refer to all marital affairs, such as Pre-Cana. Other chruches do not do this, it is the only nuptial event in the New testament. I have never heard of a Kan-an or similar religious orfder or even society. ( Full Answer )
Unfortunately, I don't believe any orders of nuns or congregations of sisters accept women who have significant physical, emotional, or mental challenges. This is not to say that women with health challenges are not beloved by God, special, and good people; it is only because the life the sisters le…ad requires significant physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental strength, and the lives of the sisters are bound together in community: any health crisis affecting one sister seriously affects the lives of the entire community.. Men and women with health challenges such as bipolar are often accepted into what are called Third Orders or lay confraternities of Catholic Orders. There are lay associates of Carmelites, Franciscans, Dominicans, and many more, who participate in the spiritual benefits of the Order, live out the order's charisms (gifts), participate in the order's spirituality and mission, but maintain their own homes, jobs, families, and finances. Most lay associates are healthy and active individuals, but some face health challenges that are well-controlled with medication. You can find each of these Orders on the web, and they will link to their lay associates pages. ( Full Answer )
I have never heard of this designation. There are such things as honorary members of ,say the American Legion(who are not,strictly speaking War Vets), and honorary members of some organizations such as the UN, I cannot imagine a rigorously formal Religious order having any (fellow travelers) or hono…rary members. One branch of the Carmelite is discalced, that is walking around barefoot is part of their religious regimen, i cannot imagine any civil type doing this, outside the Cloisterered environment. Okaykt ere are Honorary members of say,t he American Legion, maybe even some Police Agencies, but not the Carmelite order, at least to the best of my knowledge. This writer used to write articles published in several religious mags, so I knwo what i am talking about. as far as I know, No! No HOnorary Nuns, and certainly not among the carmelites.

Nuns . Origin and history . The institution of nuns and sisters, who devote themselves in various religious orders to the practice of a life of perfection, dates from the first ages of the Church, and women may claim with a certain pride that they were the first to embrace the religious state …for its own sake, without regard to missionary work and ecclesiastical functions proper to men. St. Paul speaks of widows, who were called to certain kinds of church work (1 Timothy 5:9), and of virgins (1 Cor., vii), whom he praises for their continence and their devotion to the things of the Lord. The virgins were remarkable for their perfect and perpetual chastity which the Catholic Apologists have extolled as a contrast to pagan corruption (St. Justin, "Apol.", I, c. 15; Migne, "P.G.", VI, 350; St. Ambrose, "De Virginibus", Bk. I, C. 4; Migne, "P.L.", XVI, 193). Many also practiced poverty. From the earliest times they were called the spouses of Christ, according to St. Athanasius, the custom of the Church ("Apol. ad Constant.", sec. 33; Migne, "P.G.", XXV, 639). St. Cyprian describes a virgin who had broken her vows as an adulteress ("Ep. 62", Migne, "P.L.", IV, 370). Tertullian distinguishes between those virgins who took the veil publicly in the assembly of the faithful, and others known to God alone; the veil seems to have been simply that of married women. Virgins vowed to the service of God, at first continued to live with their families, but as early as the end of the third century there were community houses known as partheuones ; and certainly at the beginning of the same century the virgins formed a special class in the Church, receiving Holy Communion before the laity. The office of Good Friday in which the virgins are mentioned after the porters, and the Litany of the Saints, in which they are invoked with the widows, shows traces of this classification. They were sometimes admitted among the deaconesses for the baptism of adult women and to exercise the functions which St. Paul had reserved for widows of sixty years. . http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/11164a.htm ( Full Answer )

A Carmelite can offer up personal prayers and sacrifices for your friend. The Carmelites put primacy on prayer. They can, as community, offer masses, rosaries and divine office for your friend, as well as private prayers. They believe in redemptive suffering; i.e., as Jesus suffered on the cross to …redeem the world, we can suffer in union with him for the purposes of others to obtain special graces, etc. So there are many fruitful ways in which they can assist you in your special love for this person.

It was St. Teresa of Avila who persuaded John to join the Carmelites and become the spiritual director of the nuns. St. Teresa had experienced a call to form a male branch of the Discalced (reformed) Carmelites. It is notable that St. John did not place much value on mystical experiences. He is famo…us for his writings on "The Dark Night of The Soul", during which the soul cannot "feel" the presence of God; he postulates that the less one "experiences" God, the more God is truly present in his essence of quietness.

Anyone who has discerned their vocation and has been approved by the order can become a nun, though it is not that simple. To become a nun takes many steps. First, one must be a member of a parish, usually a Roman Catholic parish, though there are Anglican orders. Then one must discern their vocatio…n. They will usually go on a retreat and have a spiritual director to guide them. It takes many years to know if one has a vocation to the Religious Life i.e. to be a nun (contemplative)/Religious sister (apostolic). Most orders want you to have some life experience and at least a university education. It depends what type of order you go to, for example, Dominican nuns are quite intellectual, but each order has a centre of their life. It could be Daily Mass or Praying the Rosary daily. if you want more information on this, you can email me on email@example.com ( Full Answer )
I believe you are referring to Nursing Nuns at St.Vincent"s hospital in the Village. They were probably of the Sisters of Charity ( co founded by Vincent!) but there may be another order involved. There was a predominatley French order of Sisters of Ste Jeanne D"arc and these WERE associated with S…aint Vincent"s Church- which is patterned in part on the famed French Madeleine- the Veterans of Foreign Wars chapel is well worth a visit! There is, of course a neat statue of the Maid-at-arms on the altar wich was brought over from France on the Normandie steamship in l935. So it is quite a famous church and a French language parish- in MANHATTAN. ( Full Answer )
what kind of question is this??? idk Nuns (actually they are sisters, though "nuns" is commonly used for teaching sisters as well) belong to different religious orders which are distinguished, among other things, by the habit they wear. The habit with the bonnet resembles the historic habit …of the Sisters of Charity, the order founded by Elizabeth Ann Seton. However, I can never recall seeing a nun in such a habit and suspect that by 1964 even that order was wearing a more conventional habit. I speculate that it was chosen for its effect of sustaining a slightly sinister air about the principal. ( Full Answer )
The Order of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (the "Carmelites") was founded in Palestine by St. Berthold about 1145 A.D. The original rule, set down in 1209 A.D. by the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Albert of Vercelli (1149-1214), was very severe prescribing absolute poverty, total abstinence from meat, an…d solitude. After the Crusades, the Englishman St. Simon Stock (d. 1265) reorganized the Carmelites as mendicant friars. The laxity of the sixteenth century brought reforms among the women under St. Teresa of Avila (1515-82) and the men under St. John of the Cross (1542-91). This created the independent branches of the order, know today as the Discalced Carmelites (which means unshod, following the Teresian reform. ( Full Answer )
(1545 - 63) 19th ecumenical council of the Roman Catholic church, which made sweeping reforms and laid down dogma clarifying nearly all doctrines contested by the Protestants. Convened by Pope at Trento in northern Italy, it served to revitalize in many parts of Europe. In its first period (1545 - 4…7) it accepted the as the basis of Catholic faith, fixed the canon of the and , set the number of at seven, and defined the nature and consequences of sin; it also ruled against doctrine of justification by faith. In its second period (1551 - 52) it confirmed the doctrine of transubstantiation and issued decrees on episcopal jurisdiction and clerical discipline. In the final period (1562 - 63) it defined the as a true sacrifice and issued statements on several other doctrinal issues. By the end of the 16th century, many of the abuses that had motivated the Protestant reformation had disappeared, and the church had reclaimed many of its European followers. . Catholic Answer The Council of Trent, the most conservative Council the Church has ever had, did not really reform Catholicism as such, although it did reform Church discipline, particularly as regards the clergy. As far as Catholic dogma and doctrine, it just reaffirmed the constant teaching of the Church, reaffirmed it, and made it clear exactly what we do believe. from A Catholic Dictionary , edited by Donald Attwater, Second edition, revised 1957 . The Council of Trent The 19 th ecumenical council held at Trent in the Austrian Tyrol, 1545-63, summoned for the purpose of combating Protestantism and reforming the discipline of the Church; the longest and one of the most important of all general councils. It dealt in detail with the doctrinal innovations of the Reformers and with those gross abuses which gave them an opportunity to take root. It was one of the most important events of modern history and has had lasting effect. The principal dogmatic decisions were: the confirmation of the Nicene creed; the authenticity of the Latin Vulgate and the canonicity of all books contained therein and of them only; the definition of the doctrine of Original Sin; the precision of the doctrine of Justification, condemning justification by faith alone and imputation of grace; the condemnation of thirty errors about the sacraments; the definition of the Real Presence and of Transubstantiation as its mode: the precision of the doctrine of the sacraments of penance and Extreme Unction; the declaration that holy communion in both kinds was not necessary for lay-people and clerics not celebrating, Christ being received whole and entire under either species; the precision of doctrine concerning the sacrifice of the Mass and the sacraments of holy Orders and Matrimony; the affirmation of the doctrines of Purgatory, of the invocation of saints, and the veneration of them, their relics and images, and of Indulgences. Far-reaching decrees of reformation in discipline and morals were adopted involving many alterations in canon law, e.g. the decree Tametsi .. ( Full Answer )

"Nunns can not do any thing but they can kiss peo ple," would be a poor answer, but is what I found here before deciding to change it. A more appropriate phrasing would be that a Nun can do anything her order permits her to do. Some contemplative orders maintain vows of silence(no talking) and e…at only gruel. Some more active orders act as 'street pastor' and enter dens of iniquity in and attempt to redeem the souls within. It all depends on the vows they make, though the more common vows would be chastity(no sexual contact), humility(no owning stuff) and charity. They also can not do any thing that is against their Churches ethos, obviously, such as take part in satanic rituals. ( Full Answer )

Diocletian tried price controls and dividing the empire in an effort to reform but these measures only worked for a brief time. Diocletian at first created the diarchy (rule by two) by appointing Maximian as co-emperor, but as a junior, to take care of the western regions while he took charge of t…he eastern regions. Then he created the tetrarchy (rule by four). Maximian was promoted to senior (augustus) and two juniors (caesars) were appointed. Constantius Florus helped Maximian in the west by taking care of Gallia (Gaul), Britannia (Britain) and Hispania (Spain). Galerius helped Diocletian in the east by taking care of the Illyrian provinces (Austria + the Balkans except the lower Danube-Thrace). The empire had four capitals, Nicodemia (Izmit, Turkey), Mediolanum (Milan), Augusta Trevorum (Trier, Germany) and Sirmium (near Belgrade) which were the seats of, respectively, Diocletian, Maximian, Constantius, and Galerius. Diocletian also created an autocracy by relying on a greatly expanded bureaucracy under his control that took over most state functions. He doubled the number of provinces (from 50 to almost 100) and grouped them into 12 dioceses headed by a vicarius, an official appointed by him. This weakened the governors who now administered much smaller provinces and were deprived of their judicial and military functions which were taken over by the vicarii and the duces (exclusively military officers) respectively.

It's not impossible , but it's highly unlikely. Anyoneleaving religious orders should do so with the understanding thatit's permanent. Normally, being released from vows requiresauthorization from very high up in the church (if not fromthe pope himself, certainly from someone who personally knows… him),and it's not done casually... the process can take years. After going through that, the likelihood of being accepted backinto the order is minimal at best, especially if she left "to getmarried" (as opposed to leaving for other reasons, and thenincidentally getting married later).
