Renewing the Conversation between Faith and Science
By Ilia Delio, OSF, May 8, 2014

“In his recent conversation with leaders of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, Cardinal Gerhard Muller, Cardinal Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), expressed a concern about the LCWR focusing attention on the concept of conscious evolution, a concept fundamental to the work of Barbara Marx Hubbard who addressed the LCWR assembly in 2012. Cardinal Müller said that ‘such an intense focus on new ideas such as conscious evolution has robbed religious of the ability truly to sentire cum Ecclesia (to think with the Church and embrace its teachings).’”

Jesus and Women: ‘You Are Set Free’
By Elizabeth Johnson, CSJ, Apr. 22, 2014

“There is a powerful scene in the gospels that shows in a flash how life-giving the encounter between Jesus and women can be. As Luke tells the story: Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath, and a woman came in who had been crippled by a spirit for 18 years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, ‘Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.’ Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she stood up straight and began to praise God. (Lk 13:10-13)

According to its website, Global Sisters Report is “an independent, non-profit source of news and information about Catholic sisters and the critical issues facing the people they serve. Our (National Catholic Reporter) network of journalists report about their lives and works and sisters write commentary from their perspective.”
