NPR interview

There's an NPR podcast interview with Sister Pat Farrell, the president of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, on the problems between the US nuns and the vatican. As the NPR interviewer read the CDF's criticisms of the LCWR, I was struck by how incoherent/hysterical they were. An example ...

Radical Feminism. The Cardinal noted a prevalence of certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith in some of the programs and presentations sponsored by the LCWR, including theological interpretations that risk distorting faith in Jesus and his loving Father who sent his Son for the salvation of the world. Moreover, some commentaries on “patriarchy” distort the way in which Jesus has structured sacramental life in the Church; others even undermine the revealed doctrines of the Holy Trinity, the divinity of Christ, and the inspiration of Sacred Scripture.

The nuns "distort the way in which Jesus has structured sacramental life in the Church"? Really? Refresh my memory - in just which gospel did Jesus lay out a plan for the structured sacramental life in the Church?

So disturbing to see how the nuns are being treated by the vatican while at the same time the vatican passionately pursues a reconciliation with the creepy SSPX ... Bishop Fellay criticizes new CDF prefect, says SSPX united in response to Holy See
