I've changed my mind.
About new religious communities, that is. Especially the diocesan hermit and consecrated virgin type, as well as the new Benedictine monastic groups around the United States and Europe - well, pretty much all of the 'new' religious groups. I have come to believe that these groups are proof of the New Springtime John Paul II envisioned. I have come to this conclusion considering that all - or most of these groups have been founded by seasoned religious and/or priests, and approved by the diocesan Bishop. In some cases, the communities were actually called forth by the diocesan Bishop.
It's a sign.
(And strangely enough, most of them seem to favor the traditional or Extraordinary Form of Mass.)
Just a thought.
