    The sadness of it, these women prefer to be the modern Eve and continue to insist they have a right to take apples from the tree of life. And little by little they ruin their own happiness and those who follow them.

    Sisters Joy & Aline & the women religious on their team should not wonder why their orders are dying. They've been practicing vocational contraception for some time now: from the way they look, dress, speak & act. Do these unorthodox women religious believe that young women would be attracted to the radical feminist agenda that they promote? or join them in their social worker deeds? Thank God for traditional orders that are flourishing (habit, prayer, community, poverty, chastity, obedience)..

    Maybe they could signal their irrregular theological views by wearing sport jackets and bow ties, the way Jesuits do.

    They plan to promote "systemic change." Code word; means "female priests."
