Stunning unexpected support for Fr. Z’s request for LCWR credentials!

As you know, I was recently crushed by the LCWR’s second rejection.
I had reached out in hope. I had applied, again, for media credentials for the upcoming LCWR assembly in Nashville.  They have rebuffed, again, my application.

Sr. Joan had better keep her eyes on the Prize!

Who are these ‘c’atholic liberals? Young Catholics don’t know and don’t care.

I recently posted about Sr. Joan Chittister and the Council of Elders. HERE.
