Vatican II, "electric saw"

Over 50 years later we still read about examples such as what happened to even cloistered orders following Vatican II.

The New York Times looks at the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament:

The level of the order’s isolation was relaxed in the 1960s after the Second Vatican Council, a sweeping set of reforms in the Roman Catholic Church known as Vatican II. Sister Marie Aimée remembered the grille being brought down by a sister wielding an electric saw. “I said, Holy Toledo!” she recalled.

From the same article:

The order once had dozens of sisters, enough to have one praying every hour of the day. Now, there are just four.
