The public profession of the vows* - poverty,* chastity,* and obedience* - as an act of consecration* to God through a religious community. Profession can be simple (temporary) or solemn (permanent or perpetual). In the AR tradition, one first makes simple vows for a period of time (normally for three years) before deciding with community approval, to make solemn vows. For further information on profession and the vows see Entering the Community.
The ceremony at which a Religious makes promises (or vows) to live the Religious Life with integrity and fidelity to the Rule. The profession of these vows may be for a limited period or for life. The usual pattern is to make a ‘first' or simple profession in which the vows are made to the community. After three or more years a Life Profession may be made, which is to the Church and so the vows are usually received by a bishop. In the Anglican Communion, Life Professed Religious can usually be secularised only by the Archbishop or Presiding Bishop of a Province.

A profession is an organization that has political control and a monopoly over its activity through formal education, licensing, regulations, and symbols.(empty) REDUCTIONISM Physical reductionism excludes social, psychological, and behavioral dimensions of illness.Disease appears to be localized in the individual body. Such a conception prevents the medical model from conceiving of the social body or how aspects of the individual's social or emotional life might affect physical health. As a result, medicine generally ignores social conditions contributing to illnesses or promoting healing (Freund and McGuire 1995:6, see also 214).
