Sister Nancy Schrecks keynote address to the LCWR 2014 annual assembly was equally confused and defiant.
Sister Carol Zinn, a Sister of St. Joseph, who is president of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, receives a blessing before her Aug. 12 address at the annual LCWR assembly held in Nashville, Tenn., Aug. 12.
"We have been so changed that we are no longer at home in the culture and church in which we find ourselves.
This quotation from the keynote address (PDF) of Franciscan Sister Nancy Schreck to the August 12-15 annual assembly of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) is startling, considering that it comes from a vowed member of a religious order who is speaking for other sisters. While Catholics should not feel at home in this modern culture, not feeling at home in the Catholic Church is indeed another matter.
Yet that quotation and many of the other statements in Sister Schrecks keynote do help explain why the LCWR has resisted the reform that was ordered two-and-a-half years ago by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) and reaffirmed in April 2013 by Pope Francis.

As a Catholic man, my response is, ........”Who?..... Whatever...”
“Nuns” (actually, they are not nuns, they are religious sisters) in chasubles (which is men’s clothing), giving a “blessing” (which is impossible, since they are not priests).
Obviously, the Vatican strategy is simply wait until they are all dead, which should be in about ten years.
