Update: Dominican sister caught volunteering at abortion clinic censured by congregation
American Papist ^ | November 3, 2009 | Thomas Peters

Posted on 11/03/2009 3:52:29 PM PST by NYer

Last week I blogged about the outrageous episode of Dominican Sister Donna Quinn's volunteer work at an abortion clinic being exposed.

I urged AmP readers to take action and email her superior, Sr. Patricia Mulcahey, OP. No doubt in part because of your efforts, Sr. Mulcahey has now responded on behalf of her congregation:

From Pat Mulcahy, Prioress of the Sinsinaw Dominicans On Behalf of Council Members, Erica, Howard, Jo, Liz, Mary Ellen, Sue, Tere

Public Statement of the Sinsinawa Dominican Congregation

"Several months ago the leadership of the Sinsinawa Dominicans was informed that Sr. Donna Quinn, OP, acted as a volunteer escort at a Chicago area clinic that among other procedures, performs abortions.

After investigating the allegation, Congregation leaders have informed Sr. Donna that her actions are in violation of her profession as a Dominican religious. They regret that her actions have created controversy and resulted in public scandal. They are working with Sr. Donna to resolve the matter appropriately."

Congregation leaders offer the following statement on behalf of members of the Congregation:

"We as Sinsinawa Dominican women are called to proclaim the Gospel through the ministry of preaching and teaching to participate in the building of a holy and just society. As Dominican religious, we fully support the teaching of the Catholic Church regarding the dignity and value of every human life from conception to natural death. We believe that abortion is an act of violence that destroys the life of the unborn. We do not engage in activity that witnesses to support of abortion."

This response is a start, but it is still lacking.

It is clear that the congregation and Sr. Mulcahey are under great pressure, otherwise they probably would never have taken any action against Sr. Donna. Consider Sr. Mulcahey's email response to LifeSiteNews when Sr. Donna's activities were first coming to light:
"[Sr. Mulcahey] in an email response to LSN that [Sr. Donna] sees her volunteer activity as "accompanying women who are verbally abused by protestors. Her stance is that if the protestors were not abusive, she would not be there.""
Evidently Sr. Mulcahey has since re-examined her insane defense of Sr. Donna's activities at an abortion clinic, but she still has to eliminate this sort of language from her new defense: "[Sr. Donna] acted as a volunteer escort at a Chicago area clinic that among other procedures, performs abortions."

... "among other procedures"?! This sort of verbal hedging about what goes on at abortion clinics is something I'm used to hearing from ... abortion clinic workers, not religious sisters!

Nonetheless, as I wrote, it's hard to imagine Sr. Donna ever being ordered to cease her scandalous activities unless someone paid attention, and you (and many others) had demanded that something be done about it. So well done, papists.

Now let us continue to pray for the conversion of these sisters' hearts.

Updated: Nun Abortion Clinic Escort Reprimanded - Dominican Congregation Apologizes for Scandal - Three bishops now discussing ways to end this many years ongoing scandal

HINSDALE, Illinois, November 3, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A congregation of US Dominican nuns has publicly apologized for the scandal caused by one of its members acting as a volunteer escort at a Chicago area abortion facility, who now faces severe canonical penalties including excommunication and the possibility of dismissal. 

LifeSiteNews.com (LSN) first broke the story about Sr. Donna Quinn, O.P., a Dominican nun who is outspokenly in favor of legalized abortion, who had been identified by pro-life witnesses as an escort for the ACU Health Clinic.

Sr. Quinn's religious community, the Wisconsin-based Sinsinawa Dominican Congregation, admitted in a press release posted on their website that they were informed of the allegation several months ago, and, after having completed a period of investigation, the Congregation's leaders have informed the pro-abortion sister that "her actions are in violation of her profession as a Dominican religious."

The congregation reports that its leaders "are working with Sr. Donna to resolve the matter appropriately" and regret the public scandal caused by her actions.

The Sinsinawa Dominicans took the opportunity to re-affirm unequivocally their commitment to the Catholic Church's core teachings, as well as the necessity to witness to the sanctity and dignity of all human life from conception to natural death.

"We as Sinsinawa Dominican women are called to proclaim the Gospel through the ministry of preaching and teaching to participate in the building of a holy and just society," read a statement issued on behalf of the congregation.

"As Dominican religious, we fully support the teaching of the Catholic Church regarding the dignity and value of every human life from conception to natural death. We believe that abortion is an act of violence that destroys the life of the unborn. We do not engage in activity that witnesses to support of abortion."

ChicagoCatholicNews.com reports that three Catholic hierarchs are meeting to discuss what remedial action must be taken to correct Sr. Quinn: Cardinal Francis George of the Archdiocese of Chicago, Bishop J. Peter Sartain of Joliet, Illinois and Bishop Robert Morlino of Madison, Wisconsin. An anonymous aide to Morlino said the three were involved since Sr. Quinn's motherhouse is located within Bishop Morlino's territory, but Sr. Quinn resides in the Chicago Archdiocese, while the abortion clinic where she gave formal assistance to abortion as an escort is situated within Sartain's diocese.

Formal cooperation with abortion is considered a grave sin in the Catholic Church that carries an automatic penalty of excommunication or excommunication latae sententiae as it is called within the Church's canon law (Canon 1398). Earlier in July, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith reiterated the penalty of excommunication applied to all parties formally cooperating in abortion, emphasizing that the penalty was an act of mercy, because in that way the Church "makes clear the gravity of the crime committed, the irreparable harm done to the innocent who is put to death, as well as to the parents and the whole of society."

All three prelates will have to take that matter into consideration when they consult, but canon lawyer Edward Peters on his blog says that Sr. Quinn faces the possibility of dismissal from her order if matters are not reconciled.

"Canon 695 calls for the mandatory dismissal of a religious guilty of the delict of abortion described in Canon 1398," writes Peters. The case would be made that Sr. Quinn is an accomplice to abortion under Canon 1329, which would then make Canon 695 applicable.

"The novelty of nuns serving as murder mistresses at abortion clinics means that there is not much jurisprudence for such cases, I grant, but it is still a theory worth exploring," Peters remarked.

Another possibility would then be Canon 696, Peters continues, "dismissal from religious life can be imposed against one who gives 'grave scandal arising from culpable behavior.'"

That leaves either Sr. Quinn's superiors or the three bishops with the option to pursue Sr. Quinn's dismissal in the Church's courts. With American Archbishop Raymond Burke as the head of the Apostolic Signatura, the Church's supreme court of appeal for canon law cases, it is doubtful that Sr. Quinn could acquit herself of the charges in light of long-standing evidence regarding her support for abortion.

Chicago-area pro-life witnesses informed LifeSiteNews.com that Sr. Quinn has acted as escort for "six years, at least" and they were finally able to identify her after her picture appeared in an article for the Chicago Tribune.

Sr. Quinn has also spoken out in favor of legal abortion for decades and is a coordinator of the National Coalition of American Nuns (NCAN), an organization which opposes the Catholic Church's position on abortion, homosexuality, contraception, and the male priesthood.

Nuns take three vows—poverty, chastity and obedience—which flow from the evangelical counsels of Jesus Christ.

Poverty

The vow of poverty leads a nun to imitate Jesus who for our sake became poor, although he was rich. It helps her to be poor in spirit as well as in fact, and to live a life of labor and moderation. By the vow of poverty , she gives up the right to control or benefit from personal property and commits herself to live interdependently within a community, according to its constitutions. The purpose of this vow is to free her from being fascinated by material things so that she may be free to serve others.

Chastity

The vow of chastity leads a nun to imitate Jesus who was chaste. This vow frees her from the demands of an exclusive human relationship so that she can give all her love to God, and through God to all people. By the vow she promises not to marry or to engage in romantic behavior or sexual acts.

Obedience

The vow of obedience leads the nun to imitate the obedience of Jesus Christ. by seeking God's will for her and obeying her lawful superiors according to the constitutions of her particular group. As a member of her religious community, she searches for the will of God, not in arbitrary commands, but in prayerful reflection and dialogue with others.

Sounds like this Nun is in breach of her vows...

"Resolve"? She needs to get on her knees and repent.

The sacrament is called Anointing of the Sick, and can only be performed by a priest.

I long ago lost any respect for the Dominican sisters as an organization, although I still hold some of them in very high respect. I had a problem with their discrimination against my disabled daughter in a school they ran. When I challenged them to change their policies and behaviors and issue an apology to my daughter they closed ranks and went into a completely defensive role. They had absolutely no interest in doing the right thing if it resulted in any embarrassment to themselves, disabled children be damned.

Big surprise that there are two big Vatican studies (read investigations) going on right now into the Dominicans and the Franciscans. At the end of the day these nuns are gonna get their asses handed to them for their ambivalence over abortion and their militancy over women in the priesthood. From my non-Catholic vantage point, I don’t get why these liberal nuns don’t just find another meal ticket instead of crossing their Catholic vows.

That question recently surfaced on a Catholic program. The response made sense. There was a time when those not in alignment with Catholic teaching would walk away from the Church. Today, however, they garner more attention by remaining within the fold rather than leaving it.

***She ought to be excommunicated.***

Extravagant public sinning usually results in one excommunicating one’s self. Does anyone really think that Ted Kennedy was a Catholic in good stead (unless he had a good last confession and a good last confessor and a complete repentence)?

Technically she may have incured Latae sententiae excommunication, because she co-operated in the performance of an abortion.

"Dominican" and "Franciscan" are families of religious communities, not monolithic organizations.

The Sinsinawa Dominicans have been liberal for a long time.

The Nashville Dominicans are quite the contrary.

(Compare the two websites, especially the pictures of the sisters of each community.)

Mother Angelica is a Franciscan (technically, a "Poor Clare of Perpetual Adoration"). Nobody's going to investigate her for being too liberal. That would be dangerous to their health! ;-)

The Dominican Sisters of Mary are religious women who desire to love and serve God through the profession of the three vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience. As Dominicans, inspired by the call of Pope John Paul II for a New Evangelization, we seek to preach and teach the Truth of Jesus Christ.

Since we began in 1997, nearly 100 young women have entered our community responding to God’s call of a vocation to religious life.

In His fidelity, God continues to call young women to love Him and be loved by Him in the heart of His Church. And these women are saying “Yes” to the Lord, in imitation of Mary, the most perfect follower of her Son.

Through the witness of our lives we wish to extend Jesus’ invitation of love to you. We echo the words of Pope Benedict XVI:

“Do not be afraid of Christ! He takes nothing away and He gives you everything. When we give ourselves to Him, we receive a hundred-fold in return. Yes, open, open wide the doors to Christ - and you will find true life.”

The Formation of a Dominican Sister of Mary

The initial formation and education of a Sister occurs over an eight year period.

We accept women between the ages of 17 - 32.

Young women begin formation as a Dominican Sister of Mary by making a commitment to a 4-month Aspirancy. After this they become Postulants (8 months) and then Novices (2 years after Postulancy). During these stages, they spend the majority of their time at the Motherhouse studying, attending classes and engaging in apostolic activities.

Temporary Professed (five years) Sisters begin work on academic degrees and gradually become more fully involved in the apostolate.

Final Professed Sisters are fully engaged in the apostolate, as well as serving the community through administrative roles within the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.

I recognize and appreciate that all institutions, regardless of their purpose, are ultimately comprised of fallible and corruptible people. I believe this is the case with the Dominican sisters I referenced in my earlier posting. It was the special nature of the Dominican Sisters that compounded the hurt felt by my daughter, my wife and myself. Those we expected to be the most supportive and comforting in the end proved to be the most cold inflexible and seriously tested my faith.

Well, well, well.

Since the Sinsinawa sisters have known about this for ages and have done nothing, the conclusion that I draw is that they know they are about to be Apostolically Visited.

Too late, ladies - the handwriting is already on the wall, you have been numbered and finished, you have been weighed in the balance and found wanting, and your kingdom is divided and given to the Nashville Dominicans . . . . .

Need to know more. If the sister was part of the support mechanism IN ANY MANNER of this abortion clinic, then she needs to be removed from ANYTHING related to the Church's involvement. She can get a job at a taco stand.

Same goes for ANY Nun or Sister who in any manner supported oBama. Wash them out. No need for them in Catholic teachings, whatsoever.
