|The nuns always laid on a welcoming |
ceremony when the Bishop paid a visit
Too damn right they are! A US nun of the liberated feminist variety is enough to scare Attila the Hun.
The ex sister in question, Mary Johnson, claims that it is the lack of nunnish clothing ie a wimple and habit that makes the Cardinals jittery. It has become a sign that the woman in question is modern, liberal and not afraid to question authority.
I would have thought that all of those attributes would be classified in the 'bad' file.
Don't nuns take vows of poverty, obedience and chastity?
And humility must come under the poverty tag just as keeping oneself pure and free of rebellious thoughts and actions must come under chastity.
As for obedience - that went out of the window years ago.
H/T to Luke Coppen of The Catholic Herald for flagging this one up and also to Bloomberg who ran the story.
Here is an extract from Mary Johnson's article, my comments are in red.
