The question is, ‘Can you be Catholic and have a questioning mind?’ That’s what we’re asking. … I think one of our deepest hopes is that in the way we manage the balancing beam in the position we’re in, if we can make any headways in helping to create a safe and respectful environment where church leaders along with rank-and-file members can raise questions openly and search for truth freely, with very complex and swiftly changing issues in our day, that would be our hope. But the climate is not there. And this mandate coming from the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith putting us in a position of being under the control of certain bishops, that is not a dialogue.

Yes! You win the booby prize, Sister: no more dialogue.
We’ve had so much dialogue in the Church that the beleaguered Faithful are starting to view the hierarchy and the pseudo religious it deals with as a ripoff of an Oprah episode.
These nuns need to submit to what the Church teaches, or take their heretical “questioning mind” and hit the liberal talk show circuit.
Catholicism is, in part, about accepting unchanging truths which are passed down to us. You don’t need to search. It’s right in front of your faces, Sisters.
The problem here is not “searching”. That’s radical-feminist-nun-blather-for-the-masses spin. The problem here for them is….well….Catholicism. That and the fact that they don’t accept obedience to the Church’s authentic teaching magisterium.
Frankly, the episcopacy and the Vatican only has itself to blame for this sham. This has been going on for 40 years and they want to put the reins on now when the average age of these ragging grannies is 75? Are you serious? Boy, that takes courage, huh? I’d think at this point the Vatican would just let the biological solution deal with the problem, but hey if ya gotta pick a fight at this point in the match, then don’t forget the Malox!
