The LCWR (Leadership Conference of Women Religious) are feeling a little frisky. I suspect they think that, even though they are being watched by the CDF for their totally weird spiritual notions, they are invulnerable in the age of Pope Francis, the most wonderfullest fluffiest Pope ehvur.
The LCWR recently gave their annual award to Sr. Elizabeth Johnson, who a couple years ago published a book on the Trinity that was so bad that even the USCCB’s doctrinal office shredded it. HERE
In giving this award to Johnson, the LCWR has effectively flipped the bird at the USCCB. That is entirely consistent with what I call The Magisterium of Nuns.
I would only add that Pope Francis is not a fan of the LCWR sort of nun. He has warned sisters about being “zitelle” and about female machismo.
And the CDF is not going away. They do not sleep and they don’t miss anything.
