If you thought the Vatican would lessen its criticism of Amercian nuns because our new Pope expressed a desire to improve the role of women in the Church, you were wrong. At least, so far. Pope Francis has reaffirmed the Vatican mandate against the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. Here are several VOTF blog posts citing recent news stories to bring you up to date:
- Sr. Joan Chittister / LCWR: ‘Radical Feminism’ or ‘Living the Gospel’
- Nuns on the Bus Leader Responds to Reaffirmation of Vatican LCWR Mandate
- Vatican, LCWR Approaching Critical Crossroads / National Catholic Reporter Editorial
- America Magazine Commentary Sees Hope for the American Nuns
