Nuns Gone Mad… Nuns Gone Wild… take your pick

I have written now a couple times about the whacky fringe group of nuns, NCAN, led by the pro-abortion Sinsinawa Dominican Sr. Donna Quinn.  HERE and HERE

Now I see at the National Catholic Register that Anne Carey, whose book I have promoted, Sisters in Crisis Revisited: From Unraveling to Reform and Renewal, has gotten into the fray.

I was amused to see the title of her piece: ‘Nuns’ Gone Mad.

I wonder if she was subliminally channeling my Nuns Gone Wild. A must read.

In any event, GMTA.  (I like my title better, if you get my drift.)

Carey’s book is worth the time, if you are interested in what went wrong with the sisters in these USA.

Reminder: I think the ultra-looney NCAN, pro-abortion, contraception, women’s ordination, etc., is doing and saying openly what the LCWR would like to be doing and saying, but can’t.  NCAN serves as a front group for the LCWR.

    I know the bishops have much to do but the Ordinary for these terribly renegade and scandalous ‘nuns” ( they do not deserve that name) really should step in and silence them under pain of excommunication.

    We must pray for all Religious by whose having fallen into heretical traps of modernism and political correctness souls are endangered. May the infinite grace and mercy of Jesus touch all our hearts and lead us to repentance and authentic love of God and neighbor.

    Sister Christina — my peeps — goes wild her own way on Italy’s version of The Voice.
    If you want to watch her and the reaction to her, you may have to cut and paste this piece into your browser. And please no sourpusses whining that this is a secular song. The point is that until they turn their chairs around, the judges have no idea. Their eyes cannot feed them stereotypes. Brava Suor Cristina!

    That’s awesome AvantiBev! YouTube says subtitles are available but I don’t know how you get them–would love to hear what the judges are saying!

    How about simply “Nuns gone”? These women have pretty much rejected their vows of poverty, chastity and (definitely) obedience. How many of them go to Mass daily or even on Sunday for that matter? I met a LCWR sister once who I had never seen at Mass before (on Sunday), she told me that she likes to “keep Sundays open”. For what?!?! How many of them go to confession? Heaven forbid they should confess their sins to Jesus through a male priest! These women are not nuns, they’re feminists. Let’s give our financial and prayerful support to the real nuns of today who are growing with vocations (Little Sisters of the Poor, Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters, Sisters for Life, Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration, and similar orders).
