On September 17, 2018, the Cardinal Prefect of the Congregation for Religious, Bishop Braz de Aviz , wrote us an ultimatum: either we accept the Commissioner "without reserve", or we do not accept it, in which case the The law provides that we may be dismissed from the Institute:
- After having acquired the moral certainty throughout this year that the reception of the apostolic commissioner within our Institute, would cause serious and certain harm, in the more or less long term, both as regards the understanding of the charisma bequeathed by God to Mother Mary of the Cross , our Foundress, only for the way of living it.
- After many times proposing solutions of appeasement, without any answer had never been given to us,
- after consulting with authorized and competent persons,
- After having prayed a lot and always concerned, to remain girls of the Church,
Wanting to remain faithful and obedient to the truth:
It appeared to us that we had no choice but to give up our wishes. We are therefore 34 out of 39 Sisters, who are involved in the Institute, to have asked to be relieved of our wishes from the Dicastery for religious.
We do not make this sacrifice lightly: we wish to remain in full communion with the Church, but we can not signify more clearly, nor more painfully besides, our impossibility, in conscience, to obey what is imposed.

Source is Riposte Catholique via google translate. My apologies.
ebb tide, I am confused about what the story is can you please elaborate?
Sounds to me like 34 out of 39 Sisters in the Little Sisters of Mary Order are quitting being nuns because of immorality imposed on them by the Catholic Church.
Does not compute. Please translate into plain English. What is going on here?
The google translation was okay, but most people need to know more of the backstory. They probably dont know about Frankie taking over the womens contemplative orders, for example.
What was the church demanding of them?
Basically it was submission to Modernism and abandonment of Tradition. They refused to do either.
My best guess is that this should read "daughters of the Church."
Pleae keep in mind, this is a google machine translation.
Yes. This is an enormous, and undoubtedly most painful, step for them to take. As faithful daughters of the Church, they refuse sedevacantism, and are left with no other choice.
He has destroyed or deformed -past-recognition a number of traditional religious institutes this way. Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, for one.
Another example: the apparent ease with which Pope Francis usurped and reshaped the Knights of Malta was really weird, considering that the Knights have Permanent Observer status at the United Nations, they issue their own passports, and they are are a sovereign subject of international law. The swift and successful coup against them by Francis was --- I've read --- in large part a grab for their charitable accounts.
It's like Henry VIII plundering the English monasteries, except in this case the power-mad anti-Catholic autocrat who's doing it is the pope.
