Do you want fries with that habit, Sister?

U.S. Catholic, a monthly publication discussing, reviewing, contemporary issues among Catholics, has commented frequently on the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith’s investigation of American women religious (sisters, nuns).

A current commentary on their weekly bulletin gives readers a chance to read the details of this process – as one writer states: at best an abuse of authority, at worst it looks like bullying.

And anyone who has had the privilege of knowing women religious understands that these communities are unique in their charisms, in their ministry. These communities are not franchises – like McDonalds - they are life-long blessings, blessings Catholics will protect at all costs.
