Religious Life

Religious life has continually developed throughout history. Every religious order has its own charism, or special gift, which defines its mission and spirituality. A great number of religious orders exist throughout the world today, in a variety of forms: hermits, monks, cloistered nuns, mendicants, active apostolic religious, missionaries, and others.
