I picked up from Elizabeth Johnston that, according to media in Belgium, a man who identifies as a woman wants to be admitted to a convent of Poor Clares.
Great idea, right? What could go wrong?
Actually, now that I think about it, the Jesuits and a lot of other religious orders… heck… and dioceses have been admitting effeminate men to the ranks and absolutely nothing has gone wrong with that right?
As an now retired bishop once told me, warning me about a few priests of the diocese waaaay back in the day,
“There are old women of both sexes.”
The other day I saw a good piece at Crisis penned by women who want men to be men. Good idea. As a matter of fact, there’s no way out of the spiral of disaster we are in until that happens.
