Conservative order of nuns on verge of destruction following Vatican interventions | News | Lifesitenews

I rarely (and I mean RARELY) post anything from LifeSiteNews as it has been my experience that they sometimes play pretty loosely when it comes to presenting the facts about various issues and events in the Church. But this article - if correctly presented - is something that should concern all religious communities. If the Vatican can intrude into the life of an order simply because its members choose to live their lives as nuns in a traditional manner, then it can do the same to any order for any reason it so chooses. In this case, it is wrong IMHO. So long as an order is not doing anything in contravention to the Canons of the Church or violating Church teaching, doctrine, or dogma, they should be free to live out their vows in whichever way they decide supports their founding charism.



Read the article and decide for yourself whether or not the Vatican has overstepped its rightful role in the life of this French religious order of nuns.
