I have written in the past about the "soap sisters", the fine Dominican Nuns of the Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary in Summit, NJ. They produce Seignadou Soap. Good stuff. I have ordered it for myself and for gifts. They support their monastery this way.
I received a note from them which you will want to read closely.
It’s come to our attention that the LCWR has listed us, [Ugh… but wait! There’s more!] The Dominican Nuns of Summit, as belonging to the LCWR on their exhibition Women of Spirit which is currently being held in OH but which was most recently at the Smithsonian in DC. The friend of one of our novices saw it and well, she couldn’t believe that we belonged to the LCWR but maybe…It also listed the Morristown Carmel!
We don’t know why they did this. [Could it be that the LCWR is mendacious?] Our prioress will be contacting them to ask that our name be removed but it probably is on a permanent display that they won’t want to disfigure. We just don’t want people thinking we belong to the LCWR!
The Dominican Nuns of the Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary in Summit, NJ do not belong to the dissenters of the LCWR.
In the meantime, show support by buying some soap.
