Day 57: LCWR annual meeting

Dear Pope Francis,

One of my favorite theologians, Ilia Delio, addressed the annual meeting of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) as their keynote speaker. I think her talk was profound.

It’s also interesting that the bishop charged with the Vatican-mandated “reform” of the LCWR is attending this year. I hope he listened closely to Ilia Delio. And also that he truly listens to the women religious.

As I noted in a piece I wrote last year for the National Catholic Reporter, this situation needs true dialogue. It seems the sisters are willing. I hope you are too.

(To be honest, I think it’s Cardinal Dolan and those like him who could do with a little oversight, not the sisters. But that’s just me.)

Your friend,
