Need a review of what’s up with the LCWR?

If some of you are wondering what is going on with the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, there is a good summary piece at the National Catholic Register.  That’s the Register, not the National Schismatic Reporter (aka Fishwrap… which is in the tank for the LCWR).

In case you have been scratching your head, this is a decent summary of what has been going on.

    These LCWR sisters behave like tone deaf singers. They insist that they are absolutely *not* off key, when professionally trained musicians say they are. If the LCWR were aspiring opera singers, they would sound like Florence Foster Jenkins: singing The Birds.

    *WARNING! You might get nauseous. Bring a bucket.*

    Sounds like the LCWR has developed some bad habits.

    @ Joecct77
    And they say its Nun of the Vatican’s business.

    Wow, Vexilla, that was painful! It must have been hard to be her mother. Having a child who loves to sing but sings like a bad canary, it had to be rough.

    Re: Florence Foster Jenkins: Her father apparently refused to pay for the lessons (sparing her mother, I suppose), so she was only able to complete her professional training after he died.
