    Just one correction/comment; the first tour was to promote the Faithful Budget, which the Bishops also supported, along with people of many faiths. They were standing in solidarity with the Bishops on basic Catholic social teachings then and now.

    Susan Q: True…sorta. And not. Because a lot of bishops agreed with Paul Ryan more than the Nuns on the Bus, or said that his positions were not in conflict with church teaching. So you didn’t get any bishops standing with the sisters then — also because they were events that favored Democrats during a presidential campaign. But you may get some Bishops on the Bus this time.

    Nuns on the Bus should make a stop in St. Peter’s Square and gather a crowd of The People of God–sans the clergy–and demand of Francis and his curia that Benedict’s and Cardinal Levada’s gestapo treatment of them be promptly stopped.

    While they’re at it, they can clarify for Francis how their ministries are precisely the consideration of the poor and those cast out by John Paul, Benedict, and the continuing clericalism of their church, those Francis has been urging us to better attend. Their ministries are exactly what Jesus, “The Model of the Holy,’ urged us to do.

    Shows how very political the hierarchy remains even after John Paul demanded they quit elective office. Every bishop knows he has a bigger “bully pulpit” than any elected member of our national House of Representatives–and many senators, also. And when they gather under Timothy Dolan’s USCCB, that’s politics at its highest and most suspicious. Actually, it’s a violation of the separation of church and state constitutionally required by the First Amendment.

    I’d like to see the nuns come pray outside Planned Parenthood to end abortion during 40 Days for Life. Now that WOULD be radical!!

    “When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself.”
    Leviticus 19:33-34

    [See also Exodus 22:21, 23:9; Leviticus 25:35; Deuteronomy 1:16, 10:19, 23:16, 27:19; Psalm 146:9; Jeremiah 22:3, Zechariah 7:9-10; Mathew 6:14-15, 22:37-40, 25:31-46.]

    God bless the Nuns on the Bus! All the angels in heaven rejoice!

    I hope and pray the Bishops will stand with God and the Nuns on this one. So far, most have acted more like Pilate than Christ on this matter.

    Aloha, Nuns and all those who support them!

    I AM a writer and strong believer in everyone’s right to dignity, freedom, love, equality, care, nourishment and prosperity.

    I wrote a poem, “A Tweet To Pope Francis” that combines nature, Mother Mary and St. Joseph, Mary Magdalene and Jesus, and St. Francis and St. Claire in a message to the Pope about treating females equally. You may enjoy reading it and viewing the exquisite artwork.

    It is published in OpEdNetwork, a progressive blog that has had wonderful articles about the NOTB from time to time.

    To view the article in OpEdNetwork, please click here:
    Equality In All Things–Equal opportunity for leadership, and treatment with full love, is the humble request of the Masters.

    Please feel free to comment, tweet, LIKE, post on your network, and forward to all who may benefit from its vibrations, in its entirety, with full credit given to the author and the artwork.

    Again, thank you for all you are and do to make this world a more beautiful, joyful, peaceful, and loving place.
