    What’s surprising? He’s quoting the same sister!

  • Clare Sebok

    It surely is more than a coincidence that the words connecting the two parts of the quotation are the same (and that the sanctions were). The Register article says the following:

    and that the “sanctions” were

    The CDF statement adds the word so-called:

    and that the so-called “sanctions” were

    Also, both writers used the exact same excerpts from the original source and combined them into one sentence. Coincidence? I doubt it.

    Praxiology theology, which the Pope admonishes, and which 80% of US nuns have turned to, is nothing more than atheistic and materialistic Marxism wearing the cloak of a saint and in South America it is known as “Liberation theology” (to this day, I know of no one liberated from any sort of oppression by it). It is the biggest theological movement in the world and comprises one third of the Communist and socialist nations. Praxiology theology was founded by Karl Marx and one third of the Catholic clergy in the world are praxiologians who defend and follow it.

    The traditional theology is cosmology, and the new deeper perspective is ontology. Few know about ontology theology since so much mind, time and energy is wasted in the widespread heretical practice of praxiology theology.

    1. Karl Marx “founded” no theology whatsoever. Praxiology also isn’t a theology, but a method – as are all the -ologies you mention. 2. Because you personally know no one “liberated from any sort of oppression” because of the adoption of liberation theology by people doesn’t mean it has not happened. Every piece of global information does not swirl by you for the taking, believe it or not. 3. Traditional theology is theo-ology not cosmo-ology. Theology is about God. I have no idea how ontology is even construed to be a kind of theology. Ontology has to do with being and therefore as “new, deeper perspective” it is philosophy (metaphysics), not theology of any sort. How you see philosophy/metaphysics become a “new” theology at all boggles the mind. Actually much the same can be said about cosmology. It’s a philosophy because it focuses on not-God, but creatures. And so on with regard to all the other -ologies you mention except theology itself. Theology is theology. All the rest are not-theologies. 4. There’s a famous phrase attributed to Pope Francis: “Who am I to judge…..” I advise the humble use of that phrase when tempted to write or utter “heretical/heresy”. I certainly am not in the position of judge w/reference to this issue and I seriously doubt you are either.

    I thank you for filling in some blanks for me. I find it enlightening that EWTN is umbrella for NCR(register) after the Legionaries. I find it equally enlightening that Ann Carey continues to influence the way things are seen, If I’m correct the last national platform she had was from OUR SUNDAY VISITOR which the USCCB adopted as their official voice. Has she gone over to the

  • In the post Vatican II era the religious and faithful have matured substantially, but unfortunately some in the hierarchy have not. The days in which the faithful will believe something just because a bishop or cardinal or pope said so, are long gone. When we are told something we ask why. And when some of these worthies can’t explain what they are proposing, they just whimper and pout like children who don’t get their way. Shame on them. We all need to act as adults and work together in a mature church.

    The excerpts are taken from consecutive sentences in the preface and, with ordinary (except for “so-called”) connecting words, they allowed Cardinal Mueller to represent Sr. Annmarie’s view succinctly. It may well have been a coincidence. Even if he had read Carey’s article, nothing in this article indicates that this is his only source of information on the LCWR: they are in ongoing dialogue with Archbishop Sartain. That makes the closing reference to Fox News a bit of a cheap shot.

    Regarding the placement of quotation marks, “disproportionate to the concerns raised” is Sr. Annmarie quoting from a 2012 LCWR statement. It might have been more accurate, but also more pedantic, for Carey and Mueller to use single quotation marks to indicate an internal quote in their larger quotation. It’s easy to make minor mistakes in quoting, like this article does when it includes “and” at the beginning of its quote of Sr. Annmarie. (The full sentence, which can be found using Look Inside on amazon.com, is: “In a public statement issued on June 1, 2012, [the LCWR] noted that the sanctions outlined in the mandate were “disproportionate to the concerns raised” and compromised the organization’s ability to fulfill its mission.”)

  • Cardinal Muller & Bishop Sartrain should embrace the intelligence and good works of the U S and Canadian nuns. They are my heroes. The hierarchy should focus their time and energy on pedophilia, cover-up and the children harmed by abuse. I stand with the sisters! Ann Molony Desmond

    Yeah, sharing talking point is only for liberal, open minded journalists who write articles about process, casting aspersions on people’s motives but never actually mentioning any facts.
