Encyclopedia > Roman Catholic religious order

Catholic religious orders ('Religious Institutes', cf. canons 573-746) are the major form of Consecrated life in the Roman Catholic Church. They are organizations of laity and/or clergy who live a common life following a religious rule under the leadership of a religious superior. They do so for the purpose of imitating Jesus of Nazareth more closely, mainly but not exclusively (for every order has also its peculiar charism) by observing evangelical chastity, poverty and obedience, which are the three evangelical counsels of perfection (cf. canons 599-601). They bind themselves in Church Law to this form of Christian living by taking public vows. They may additionally profess to obey certain guidelines for living. Vows are to be distinguished from Holy Orders, the sacrament which bishops, priests and deacons receive, and thus religious are not members of the hierarchy. A Taoist monk playing an instrument. ...

There are two basic types of Catholic religious orders: congregations, which take simple vows (e.g. the Congregation of Holy Cross), and orders proper, which take solemn vows (for example, the Society of Jesus) but the term congregation sometimes also applies to branches of an order which historically united several ones and/or was extended with one or more branches of a different kind, such as for women in addition to the pre-existing one for men, or tertiaries. A congregation is a religious institute of Roman Catholics in which only simple vows, not solemn vows, are taken. ...

A number of generic terms exist to define groups of orders and congregations, but they are not always exclusively defined. These include Mendicant orders, Canons regular, etc. As well particular or familiar names exist for religious such as Brother and Sister, whereas older terms including Mother and Nun are now more infrequently used. Technically Nuns are religious women who profess solemn vows rather than simple vows. The mendicant orders are religious orders which depend directly on begging, or the charity of the people for their livelihood. ... Canons regular are members to certain bodies of Canons (priests) living under a rule. ...
