The Francis "effect" continues ; - )
Wow. The Vatican wants to get the lesbians out of the convents. Poor women will just have to go run a Girl Scout troop instead.
I have a seventy plus year old aunt that is a nun. Let’s just say they are so far off the ‘reservation’ and have been for so long, I can’t imagine maybe will be able to be reigned in. Should be interesting. Many of these women are rabid Obama supporters.

I LOVE THIS POPE....SIC EM!
They were positive nightmares to work for. :p A nun has NO concept of paying an hourly wage. They fully expect you to take hours and hours of work home or work insane overtime for free because it is suppose to make you happy to do work for the Lord.
Also, they kept bringing over these poor scrawny young orphaned foreign girls. They would keep them secluded on campus and (in my opinion) pressure them into taking vows. But what do I know? Maybe I was seeing it wrong.
Sister Concetta once asked me if I had interest in the life. I told her I was madly in love with a man and she never spoke to me again unless it was about work. :p
I just wish the Bishops would just let the LCWR leadership meet with some Carmelite Nuns. Just lock them in a room and wait for the white smoke to rise from the chimney. Problem solved!
