And Bobby Vidal, our man in LA, wrote me about this fascinating website for consecrated virgins which is beginning to take on the quality of a movement!

there are more than 3000 formally consecrated virgins in 21 countries, including:

Argentina - ~250 consecrated
Belgium - 50+ consecrated
Czech Republic - 20 consecrated
Denmark - 2 consecrated
France - 600+ consecrated
Germany - ~100 consecrated
Italy - ~200 consecrated
Poland - ~20 consecrated
Spain - 170+ consecrated
Ireland - 30 consecrated
US - 150 consecrated.

Fascinating that there are so many CV's in France and so relatively few in places like Ireland and Poland.

I know that when I think of the term "consecrated virgin" I automatically think of women and the United States Association for Consecrated Virgins is explicitly for women and yet I'm sure there are men who have a similar call to live as a celibate, consecrated layman in the world, Men who are part of a standard religious community or secular Institute.

Is there an equivalent consecration for men? I met a man about to become a officially recognized hermit in Alaska recently - but these women are very much in the world.

In any case, the CV's of the US are having a conference this summer. Check out their website. It is full of fascinating information and vocational discernment resources for women considering the possibility of such a call.

And here is






an interesting video piece on a consecrated virgin in the Boston area. As she puts it, "I was hit with a truck of the Holy Spirit". O'Malley has received the promises of several women in the area and I saw an interview where he said that becoming a hermit is the male equivalent.

I have to admit that I'm not entirely comfortable with how the woman in the interview describes her relationship with Christ but i am envious of the fact that she can have the Blessed Sacrament in her home!

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
