  1. Paul says:

    “Laywoman” may be the most frequently misused word in Catholic literature. The laity are those persons who are not clerics; thus, all women are “laywomen.” A person who is not a member of a religious order is “secular.” Thus, CSC priests are religious clerics, CSC brothers are religious laymen, nuns and religious sisters are religious laywomen, my wife (e.g.) is a secular laywoman, and I (also e.g.) am a secular layman. Diocesan priests are the last permutation, secular clerics.
