Follow Those Nuns, Rev. Kent Matthies

Current leaders in the Leadership Conference of Women Religious are under fire from the Vatican.  In its assessment of the group, the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said the Leadership Conference is undermining Roman Catholic teachings on homosexuality and birth control and promoting “radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.”  In reality these nuns are doing what many of us feel called to do in a country with so many critical issues regarding women’s rights and reproductive justice.  They are doing anticipatory leadership with integrity.  They are helping people to learn, discern and advocate for justice.  Let’s follow those nuns!
