Listen to her. She reminds me that there are still person of actual goodness in this world.
I just watched the video & I couldn't agree more with you.
How odd that these nuns could be considered such a threat to the church hierarchy.
Perhaps their differences stem from what they actually do
? As this nun says, the sisters work with people on "the economic margins of society", which is why
they supported access to better health care for those people.
I'll bet is a long time since those male church "leaders" had any real, ongoing connection with the poorest in society.
Leader of 'radical' US nuns rejects Vatican criticism:
Sister Campbell suggested that her organisation's vocal support for President Barack Obama's healthcare bill was behind the slapdown.
"There's a strong connection," she said. "We didn't split on faith, we split on politics."
American Bishops saw the Obama administration's Affordable Care Act as backing state-funded abortion. The nuns disagreed.
The Vatican said that the mandate to carry out reforms of the nuns' leadership "will be for a period of up to five years, as deemed necessary".
Archbishop Sartain said, "I hope to be of service to them and to the Holy See as we face areas of concern to all."
But Sister Campbell suggested a difficult time ahead: "It's totally a top-down process and I don't think the bishops have any idea of what they're in for."
I don't think those bishops have any idea of what they're in for, either!
