LOUISVILLE, Ky —

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth celebrated 200 years of helping others.

The order was founded in Bardstown while the War of 1812 raged on and James Madison served as president. A lot has changed over the years, but Sisters of Charity of Nazareth are still serving the poor and helpless.

A recent Mass at Louisville's Cathedral of the Assumption focused on the order's work both in the U.S. and overseas.

I live in Louisville and saw a mention of this in the paper. One of the sisters shown in the paper was doing some type of liturgical dance with some type of streaming, frilly cloth. Another sister, dressed like a Buddhist from India, was carrying a pot up the aisle for some reason. The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, like so many other orders, are confused and have lost their way. How do you go from prayer, penance and habits, to eco-justice, liturgical dance, and lay clothes?

Wow I did not know this.

My only guess is that these sisters entered the convent right after Woodstock and were still hungover.
