Pope Reportedly Receives Letter Criticizing Treatment of LCWR / National Catholic Reporter

Pope Francis has received a letter from a number of prominent U.S. theologians and nonprofit Catholic groups criticizing the Vatican’s treatment of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), according to a group that organized signing of the letter.

“The effort, announced Monday (June 23) by the group Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, may represent the first direct appeal known to be received by the pontiff regarding LCWR, a group that represents some 45,000 U.S. Catholic sisters and has been placed under a sort of receivership by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.”

    The nuns should abdicate the Vatican if they are not treated with the Dignity given them by God’s own Mother’s dignity by using her womb as the “arc of the covenant ” with HIS people( all of us, male and female) Get real hierarchy…You are living in medieval times!
