A while back I opined (HERE) about the LCWR assembly speakers:
How do we explain the antics of the LCWR nuns?
I have the impression that – and mothers can correct me about the right age for this sort of thing – I have the impression that the sisters are rather like 13-year-olds right now. They push and push at the boundary of what is acceptable (acceptable for the Holy See, that is, from whom they crave approval). …
It is as if their leadership is saying: How weird can we be before something snaps?
In the last couple years their keynote speakers have talked about the “noosphere,” “cosmo genesis,” synergistic convergence” and “Christification.” They have talked about “There is no cosmos without God, and no God without cosmos.”
This report is just in from the Eye of the Tiber:
The Dark Lord Sauron To Head Upcoming LCWR Annual Assembly
MORDOR––Sister Florence Deacon announced today that the upcoming annual assembly for the Leadership Conference of Women Religious would be taking place at the smoldering base of Mount Doom in Mordor, and would be lead by the Dark Lord Sauron. The announcement came in a joint statement between LCWR leaders and numerous well know officials from the lands surrounding Mordor including Azog the Defiler, Uruk-hai Scout Captain Ugluk, Orc Captain of the Warg Rider Sharku, and President of LCWR Carol Zinn. LCWR and Mordor leaders would not comment on the specifics of the upcoming conference except to say that they were eagerly anticipating the conference, which would focus on the ongoing situation with the Vatican. “We shall soon celebrate the dawn of a new era!” Zinn shouted to tens of thousands of cheering Orcs and LCWR nuns as they all furiously, mindlessly slammed their spears against their shields in unison, over and over again. Zinn went on to conclude her rousing speech, shouting, “One conference to rule us all! No habits to bind us! No veil to blind us! And with liberation at our helm shall they be defied!”
Fr. Z is skeptical. Sauron’s policies don’t seem environmentally friendly.
