From the National Catholic Reporter:
In the video, Blair, who was appointed in April along with Seattle Archbishop Peter Sartain and Springfield, Ill., Bishop Thomas Paprocki to oversee LCWR, reads from the column in the Toledo Catholic Chronicle, in which he wrote:
“Those who do not hold the teachings of the Catholic Church, or Catholics who dissent from those teachings, are quick to attack the CDF and bishops for taking the LCWR to task.
“However, a person who holds the reasonable view that a Catholic is someone who subscribes to the teachings of the Catholic Church will recognize that the Catholic Bishops have a legitimate cause for doctrinal concern about the activities of the LCWR, as evidenced by a number of its speakers and some of its resource documents.
“A key question posed by the doctrinal assessment had to do with moving forward in a positive way. Would the LCWR at least acknowledge the CDF’s doctrinal concerns and be willing to take steps to remedy the situation? “
Will the religious sisters or nuns to whom he is referring to in the video stop undermining Church doctrine and give their assent to Church teachings or will they continue to dissent against Church doctrine? I hope that these religious stop causing scandal to the Church. We need to pray for their conversion. While we should pray for these nuns it is my opinion that the Church cannot allow such blatantly open dissent and scandal which may lead the flock astray. I think the CDF needs to make an example – exactly how I’m not sure – of the nuns to ensure that others adhere to Church teaching.
