They really don't get it and it makes you wonder how it happened.
Quote:While LCWR did not respond to repeated requests for comment, Sister Simone Campbell, Network’s executive director, said she was “stunned” that the Vatican document would single out her group, probably over its support for health care reform.

“It concerns me that political differences in a democratic country would result in such a a censure and investigation,” Campbell said.
Doesn't the Truth's of the Faith trump "private inturpretation,"  or am I wrong.  I was told many years ago by my Grandmother The Church says it and we believe it.  God won't let his Church be wrong in faith and morals issues.  We, the children of the Church may be wrong in our decisions of faith or morals, but the Church won't tell us we are right if in fact it is against what is taught by tne Church.---We ain't  Protties here.

My wife is a Baptist and she said the LCWR is wrong for what they are teaching and saying concerning the Church.  If a Baptist can see their error, why can't they see it themselves ?
Quote: In many ways, the Vatican’s actions against the LCWR encapsulated the kind of hard line that many expected Benedict — the Vatican’s former doctrinal czar — to take when he was elected in 2005.

It's pretty ironic that most view Pope Benedict XVI as too conservative. It just goes to show how morally depraved and liberal society's standards have become.

Quote: Throughout church history, and in particular in the United States, women in religious communities who take vows of poverty, chastity and obedience have directed their work toward charitable and educational ministries — running schools, hospitals, orphanages and a range of social services that have become as much a hallmark of Catholicism as the moral doctrine that the bishops oversee.

Since when was the "hallmark of Catholicism" social justice? I thought the hallmark was faith in Jesus Christ and His Catholic Church, including Her moral doctrines.

Quote:...but some have openly disagreed with church leaders on a number of hot-button issues.

So much for vows of obedience.

"a hallmark"
the article is priceless! The FSSPX is a "Right Wing Splinter Group"? Makes them sound like a modern National Socialist party.

Plus they "espose their... beliefs". Makes it sound kinda sinister.

And about the nuns...I'll just say that I think that it's hard to find an orthodox nun in the West nowadays.

There are many, many orthodox nuns and sisters in the West nowadays. The thing is that they just go about their apostolates, whether in the cloister or the world, in obedience to their superiors and the Church. You just don't hear about them because they're not 'making waves', 'dissenting' and refusing to obey their superiors and the Church. That's what makes news!
All this is is another document, when Rome actually suspends these lomg time heretical sisters i'll take these statements seriously.
I have a question. The majority of the sisters who belong to LCWR don't wear habits. It seems like that is a condition to get into the CMSRW. Since Sisters don't have "special standing," unlike nuns ( who take solemn vows), why should they change? I fully realize some sisters (and nuns, too) are very radical & out of line; but what incentitve do they jhave to change? In our diocese, if a Sister takes a job for the Church, she is given a much lower pay: "Sister's salary." not to mention the work they do
- which falls into the Spiritual/Corporeal Acts of Mercy: Feed the hungry, bury the dead, comfort the sprrowful, etc. .
So, I'm guessing we ate going to see another IHM situation.
I love NUNS just as much as everybody else,
But I think this was a mistake. And for a dose of reality: the conservative communities with the pltethora vocations have a terrible record  of keeping them by yhe tome final vows roll around we see two or three......,HOWEVER...I'm
Not talking about the CMRI's!!!

Because the entire thing is shot through with feminism. Good acts do not erase wicked philosophys. How it is a mistake to remind church members that there is a hiearchy for a reason. Feminism even in subtle forms is deadly poison.
