The Roman Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation, is the best thing to be with.

Well said, Su, it's well said.

It has very little to do with the conciliar church. Rather, it has more to do with the power and influence of the alumni and board of trustees, which limited FSSP control. The SSPX is not exempt from such legal obstacles.

Yes, and all Catholic schools not in bed with the Conciliar Church are just doing swimmingly.  Eye-roll

West Chester(Cincinnati), Ohio, anyone?

The whole nun thing is overrated. Men are better teachers of religion and are taken more seriously. Nuns just effeminize everything. Much better to have deacons, brothers, or professional male lay instructors rather than sisters.

Exactly. That's why it would be wonderful if those of the Conciliar Church would convert to it.

I was looking at the numbers and I can see how they could be disconcerting to some.

FSSP  has   0 schools
SSPX  has 88 schools + 2 university-level institutes

While I think it is always good for children to have strng male role models in their lives, it can be a very good thing to have nuns involved as well.  When you are educating girls, it is often prudent to have a woman around.

Yeah, you just need to find guys that are more interested in God than in playing video games. Good luck in this day and age.

The men of this era are a billion-part tragedy. Much of this is thanks to selfish baby boomer parents (especially fathers) trying to find their passion in life and ditching their families along the way.

Give me a holy nun over a 30 year old that's a virtual 12 year old any day of the week.

Our former priest, who taught at La Salette, said that the senior class had, if I remember correctly, 7 or 8 vocations. By thier fruits, you shall know them.

Exactly.  Also,  when girls see teaching sisters it helps to foster vocations to religious life in the girls.  The SSPX school by me has some teaching sisters and they teach the younger children.  That makes sense to me.  I think young children benefit from feminine nurturing.
