Vatican showdown: Nuns weigh future ties to Vatican
August 11, 2012

Nearly 900 Roman Catholic nuns are gathering in St. Louis this week to discuss their future relationship with the Vatican.

Ordinarily, this annual assembly of the country’s largest umbrella group for women’s religious communities wouldn’t draw the attention of the world’s press. But in the spring, the Vatican’s doctrinal watchdog office issued a report that questioned the organization’s fidelity to some church teachings, accused it of “serious doctrinal problems” and announced that three U.S. bishops would temporarily take the group’s reins in order to reform it.

This week, the members of the Leadership Conference for Women Religious – which represents 80 percent of the country’s 57,000 Catholic nuns – will discuss their options, which could range from accepting the reforms to severing their official connection to the Vatican...........

Greg Burke: The Pope’s New PR Guy

Jun 24, 2012 11:05 AM EDT

[link to www.thedailybeast.com]

A native of St. Louis, Burke is a practicing Catholic and member of Opus Dei—but by no means a Vatican apologist. He moved to Rome in 1988 as a correspondent for the National Catholic Register, a job that eventually ended when the newspaper ran out of money. He then moved to Time magazine as its Rome bureau chief before eventually accepting an offer to be Fox News’s European and Middle East on-air correspondent. In his previous jobs, he covered the illness and death of Pope John Paul II, the election of Pope Benedict XVI, the pedophile scandal, the VatiLeaks saga, and the crackdown on American nuns. “A scandal is a scandal, and I’ve reported on them all,” he says. “It all had to be told, as much as things are true, it’s good they’ve come out.”
