Futurist Addresses LCWR Assembly

A late Amtrak train kept me away from the opening of the LCWR assembly Tuesday night, but I am told that Archbishop Robert Carlson of St. Louis gave a warm welcome to the 900 sisters who are at the event. Archbishop Carlson said he realized the importance of the meeting for LCWR, and prayed that the LCWR dialogue with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith would not be politicized, but rather “worked out within a community of faith.”
That question about how LCWR members will respond to the reform of their organization mandated by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) is on the minds of everybody here, but that burning issue is the “elephant in the room” that we all know about, but nobody is supposed to talk about.
