Cardinal Müller confirms Vatican commitment to reform of LCWR

Catholic World News - September 01, 2014

The prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has reaffirmed the Vatican’s intent to reform the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR), saying that the goal is to “help them rediscover their identity.”

In an interview published in the Vatican daily L’Osservatore Romano, Cardinal Gerhard Müller pointed out that the LCWR, which is the subject of a Vatican reform effort, does not represent all the women religious in the US. He revealed: “We have received many distressed letters from other nuns belonging to the same congregations, who are suffering a great deal because of the direction in which the LCWR is steering their mission.”

Cardinal Müller, in an interview devoted primarily to the role of women in the Church, also disclosed that three or four women will soon be appointed to the International Theological Commission.

I hope people get it now that the Pope at least implicitly approves of this. Pope Francis is one of the most in-the-know and centralized Popes in a very long time and it is simply wishful thinking displayed in the articles of some who still refuse to believe that Pope Francis knows about this.
