Vatican Seeks to Clarify Review of US Sistersimages


…Skepticism about the Vatican’s true intentions grew after another Vatican office, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, announced it would be conducting a simultaneous ”doctrinal assessment” into the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, an association that gathers the leaders of most of the country’s women’s congregations. That study was announced amid concerns the leadership wasn’t toeing the Vatican line on homosexuality and other issues.

In the Oct. 9 issue of Commonweal magazine, the U.S. religious affairs journal, a member of a religious order identified only as Sister X — because she feared retribution for speaking out — said the Vatican investigations amounted to bullying of America’s sisters.”

”One suspects that Rome’s interventions will hardly promote vocations to women’s religious communities,” Sister X wrote. ”Any pastoral invitation to dialogue in the current visitation has largely been compromised” by the Vatican’s simultaneous doctrinal investigation.

Remind me: When do the priests get to have

a Visitation from Cardinal Rode, et al?
