Joseph Danielson

Sr. Brink has reportedly said in her role as head of the LCWR: “Who’s to say that the movement beyond Christ is not, in reality, a movement into the very heart of God?”

I already posted about this issue of women religious a couple of days ago, but I am moved to comment again. The above statement is so utterly absurd to any Catholic it is beyond comprehension. Sr. Brink is like a baseball commissioner who would suggest to the teams and players that the game as it is to be played now will not use baseballs, bats, or bases. And this is progress! Religious life has utterly no meaning or reason to exist without Christ at the beginning, center, and end of everything. Sr. Brink's words really make me sick to my soul.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am beyond understanding why bishops do not publicly and forcefully condemn the nonsense these so-called women religious put forth. These women can not see themselves for what they have become: ridiculous in every sense of the word. It is a shame the good ones among them have to put up with it, probably, one suspects, to have a place to live and food to eat. As anyone who has worked with these extremely liberal "feminuns" knows, they have about as much charity and concern for those who love tradition and evangelical dedication to Christ as a wolf does for a lame lamb.

I will get off my soap box now. But I surely hope the result of the Visitation will be to publicly clear the air about what many of these women have been doing for years.


Long, long over due.
