"The church is a broad umbrella, and it doesn't quickly exclude people, even people who disagree on one point or the other," he said. "But ultimately, this is about a group that represents the church doing so in a way that is accountable to the teaching and tradition of the church." - Cardinal William Levada, prefect of the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.  Levada made the comments in an interview with NCR held shortly after the meeting between officials of his office and Sr. Pat Farrell, president of the LCWR, along with Sr. Janet Mock, the group's executive director.

  1. I read the article to which you refer earlier to day and, interestingly, was struck by the exact same passage from the article. Having become a God unto oneself, it becomes impossible, I would imagine, to conceive of the possibility that (1) one could be in need of correction about anything and (2) that the same could be borne out of love to lead others to the truth, just as you said.

  2. The nuns are picking on the magisterium.
