why do some nuns not wear habits

hen a reporter recently called me for comment on the Vatican investigation of American women religious, I told him that it was too little too late. The feelings surrounding the inquiry are intense, but the stakes are notably small. Those orders under scrutiny ones that have given up the habit, communal life, and strict prayer, often out of a laudable desire to promote social justice are in painful decline. Arguments over their choices grow more irrelevant by the day. Other orders that have embraced old disciplines like singing the Divine Office, performing manual labor, and wearing the habit have fared much better. The habit seems to be a particularly important factor for the success of religious communities. A 2009 survey conducted by the Center for Applied Research of the Apostolate

 why does my body itch all over at night

why does my body itch all over at night

Here are a few medicines and home remedies to relieve itchy skin at night. If a condition like a nerve disorder or restless legs syndrome is causing the itch, see your doctor to get it treated. To treat nighttime itch yourself, you can try an over-the-counter or prescription medicine. Some of these medicines relieve just the itch. Others help you sleep. A few do both. Older antihistamines such as chlorpheniramine (Chlor-Trimeton), diphenhydramine (Benadryl), hydroxyzine (Vistaril), and (Phenergan) relieve the itch and make you sleepy. Newer antihistamines, such as fexofenadine (Allegra) or (Zyrtec), are also helpful and may be taken at night or during the day. ...

 why does my gas furnace keep turning on and off

why does my gas furnace keep turning on and off

Does this sound familiar? Your furnace turns on, runs for a few minutes and then shuts off. Soon after, it turns back on and the process repeats. What s the problem? Typically, a furnace keeps turning off and on (or short cycling ) like this because of one of these problems: QUICK DIY FIXES: Open all your air supply vents (yes, even in rooms you don t use) Clean air filter (left) and dirty air filter (right) An open air supply vent If these DIY fixes didn t solve the problem, you most likely need to. Now, if you want to learn more about these issues and why they cause the furnace to short cycle, read on. A common reason a furnace short cycles is because the heat exchanger, the part that heats your air, is getting too hot due to a lack of airflow. Once the heat exchanger overheats, it

 why does my baby squirm when breastfeeding

why does my baby squirm when breastfeeding

I think it could be a bit of a continuim with your difficulties with bfing, blackroses. You ve had attachment difficulties which sometimes don t disappear but they may be handled. Dd was a terribly fussy feeder, coming on and off, screaming. The way I fed her was to switch sides back and forth when she did this, she didn t do it all the time though. She d have up to 8 sides during one of those fussy feeds. Is it at all feeds or more at a particular time of the day, ie evening/afternoon? I d consider not feeding on a chair with arms, ie nothing t kick off then, try a couch, sitting in the middle. Dd wasn t able to be fed in a chair with arms for very long due to the kicking off the edge of the arms. As a pp mentioned, you could try some breast compressions/squeezing, just before she fusses

 why do we respect the american flag

why do we respect the american flag

When I first found out I would be moving to Mountain Home, Idaho, the first thing I did was look for the closest college in my area. It didnБt take long for me to find out that there wasnБt a college available closer than around 50 miles away. In theory, I didnБt think that was so bad. Sure itБs a bit of a drive but it could have been worse, I thought. There are plenty of people who have to deal with long commutes for jobs and other commitments. What I didnБt know was how tiring that commute can get. Especially early in the morning when you are already wanting the day to end and to be back in the warm bed. ItБs hard to just sit in the seat and stare at the road for what feels like forever. So, through my experience and others preferences, I have found 5 ways to make a long commute more

 why is one of my breast smaller than the other

why is one of my breast smaller than the other

My 15-year-old daughter has one breast that is larger than the other. She is concerned that they will not even out. What can we do to check into this? This is a very common concern among female adolescents-even adult women! But it is quite common for each breast to be slightly different in size, a condition called asymmetry. Breast asymmetry is defined as a difference of form, position or volume of the breast, and it affects more than half of all women, so your daughter shouldn't feel alone. In fact, one study of 100 women who wanted breast augmentation with implants found that 88 percent had natural asymmetries. Today, doctors can measure the symmetry of a woman's breasts via mammogram or, in your daughter's case, a special type of three-dimensional laser scanning called SCAN-3D, though

 why do they say jesus was born on december 25

why do they say jesus was born on december 25

EVERY year, on Christmas day, Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus and churches all over the country tell the nativity story. But is December 25 actually the date that Jesus was born? It turns out that is pretty unlikely Б and he was probably born in the spring or autumn. In fact, no one knows the exact date of the birth, and the bible doesnБt specify a date. The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine - the first Christian Roman Emperor. A few years after that, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated then. The reason for the choice of December 25 goes back to an ancient belief that prophets died on the same date they were conceived. Believing Jesus died on

 why do the planets orbit in many different planes

why do the planets orbit in many different planes

pretty much yes, that was the initial state of the solar system. until a shockwave from a supernova or something similar caused concentrations of mass etc etc Fine, but why does it have said momentum for? So by your example: shit is in a plane because it started that way, no explanation needed, all those non-planar objects dont exist?. Resonances are more about the eccentricity and periods of objects than their planes in general. Nope, the accretion process will create a similar collection of planar orbits, most likely along the central stars rotational plane, simply because thats where most of the matter will coalesce due to localized momentum/frictional/tidal/et al effects. Incidentally, the timescale for most of this is under 100k years, with the planets forming in only a few million.
