From a reader:
I just wanted to pass onto you this tip I received about the Apostolic Visitation of U.S. Women Religious. The second part of the questionnaire sent by Mother Clare Millea to superiors general of the American women religious orders was sent this past month. The deadline for orders to complete these questionnaires is November 1. However, many of the LCWR-friendly orders, having read the questionnaire and "lawyered up" with canon lawyers who have advised them of their rights and responsibilities, will be informing Mother Clare that they will need "more time" to complete the questionnaire.
Needless to say, the Sisters are going to have their canonists review their carefully answered responses before submitting them. It will be interesting to see how Mother Clare and company react to this delay and what implications it will have on these communities, who are obviously extremely concerned about what the future holds for them.
That is from a reader.
