Vatican unexpectedly ends crackdown of US nun group
According to the, "Vatican unexpectedly ends crackdown of US nun group. The Vatican on Thursday unexpectedly ended its controversial reform of the main umbrella group of U.S. nuns, cementing a shift in tone and treatment of the U.S. sisters under the social justice-minded Pope Francis. The Vatican said it had accepted a final report on its overhaul of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and declared that the “implementation of the mandate has been accomplished” nearly two years ahead of schedule.

"It was an abrupt about-face given that just last year, the head of the Vatican’s doctrine office, Cardinal Gerhard Mueller, sharply rebuked the LCWR for its “regrettable” attitude and behavior during the process. He accused the LCWR of being in “open provocation” with the Holy See and U.S. bishops."  FULL STORY HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Readers will recall that back in 2012 the CDF had accused the LCWR (Liberal Champions of Whacky Religious) of heterodoxy and of publicly undermining Catholic teaching on the priesthood, homosexuality and contraception while promoting “certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.” The CDF had launched a five-year overhaul plan to fix a “grave” doctrinal crisis that had left the LCWR far removed from church teaching on issues like abortion and euthanasia. But that was Benedict, this is Francis.

Today, HALLELUIAH and wouldn't you know it-- the Vatican has wrapped up its investigation TWO . YEARS . AHEAD . OF . SCHEDULE (!) and found the good sisters to be in compliance with Church teaching and ready to rock 'n' roll. Isn't that special!

By the way, I think that Synod on the Family in October is going to go very well!  Don't you?

Please Help The Remnant Fight Back Against this Insanity!
