VIRGIN

EAST AURORA, N.Y. (AP) She stood at the altar in a white gown and veil, but she was there for no man. Lori Rose Cannizzaro was dedicating her virginity to Jesus.

Saturday's rare Catholic ceremony, one her own pastor didn't know existed, turned the 42-year-old into a "consecrated virgin." Fewer than 200 women in the United States and 2,000 worldwide have declared their perpetual virginity, according to U.S. Association of Consecrated Virgins.

"There are people who think I'm nuts," Cannizzaro said.

The ceremony was a revival of one of the church's oldest rituals.

The rite is available only to virgins, who agree to abstain from sex so they can belong to Jesus Christ alone. Each woman wears a band on her left ring finger as a symbol, much like a wedding band.

Cannizzaro, who is not a nun, will continue to live on her own and work as a cook at Christ the King Seminary in a Buffalo suburb.

She said she has plenty of support from family and friends.

"It is a good and holy thing to want to be in a virginal state," she said.

The ceremony was just the second of its kind performed in the Diocese of Buffalo.

The idea of consecrated virgins faded in the Middle Ages, but Pope Paul VI restored the rite in 1970. Only a bishop can perform the special Mass. Bishop Edward Kmiec led Cannizzaro's ceremony at her home parish, Immaculate Conception.

Cannizzaro said she knew more than a decade ago she would be better off single.

"Dating wasn't working. I wasn't connecting," she said. "Not that I never wanted to be married or never wanted children."

A television show on the subject led her to the Association of Consecrated Virgins website. She spent the past two years taking seminary classes in preparation.

If Cannizzaro later changes her mind and wants to marry, she will have to ask the bishop for a release from her obligations. But such a request hasn't happened in the United States since the rite was reintroduced 36 years ago.

The consecration is an acceptance of a blessing, not a vow, said Judith Stegman, president of the Association of Consecrated Virgins and a certified public accountant in Lansing, Mich.

"The consecrated virgin is living now what all people will live in eternity before Christ," she said.

Re: VIRGIN

Wow, I learn new things every day. That's a little weird, though. I guess some people are better off alone.

I wonder how much these women masturbate :shock:
