There Are Time When The Catholic Church Gets It Wrong...

...and this is one of them.

Article link here.

So there are about 60,000 Sisters who need to be investigated for possibly straying from Church dogma. Why does the phrase "Inquisition" come to mind?

Let me just say this about my experiences growing up with women religious: there has never been a group I had experience with who gave so much of themselves for seemingly so little. These are people who truly live their faith, every moment of every day. Growing up, when my parish priest was playing golf on Wednesdays, the Sisters Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary were busy teaching.

Let's hope that the Church, in it's infinite wisdom, decides to celebrate the lives of the Good Sisters, not spend needless time and resources conducting shadowy examinations searching for dogmatic impurities.
