Did anyone stop to think (or ask) what the theological significance was of this now gone cornette?
There was the French Revolution and then there was the Cultural Revolution. Needless to say, it's been one culmiferous tumult (a truly violent agitation) for Catholics of the European continent.
Homologous moderns never got it. And they never will. And many others won't either. Cultural revolutions change lands. Today the focus is sexual release. But it used to be in large part about generosity and "oblation." At least the last chapter has yet to be written and oblation with its appeal is back.
Before our generation this order was the LARGEST womens religious order in the Church. And why? And this was their habit. Any questions?
