Archbp. Sartain of Seattle was appointed by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to keep his eyes on the doings of the sisters. (Ed: The notorious and often heretical Leadership Council of Women Religious – LCWR.)
One former LCWR president said its members are preparing for this year’s assembly with an “ominous feeling.”
“We’re going into this assembly knowing that there’s a cloud over our head and that we are being investigated and they are going to be monitoring us,” said Mercy Sr. Theresa Kane, who served as LCWR president from 1979 to 1980.
Editor’s note: Archbishop J. Peter Sartain (pronounced “Sarten)”) is a fair man, a good bishop and an all-around nice fellow. The sisters should be pleased to have him in attendance – unless they again plan to blatantly and publicly spout heresy. That could turn out to be a problem – unless perhaps, our new Pope – who has already advised similar groups not to worry about such trivial matters – also decides to attend!
