Profile of Sister Carol Keehan

Catholic World News - February 28, 2012

The National Catholic Register profiles Sister Carol Keehan, the head of the Catholic Health Association, who is once again at odds with the leadership of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops.

A Daughter of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, Sister Keehan was named by Modern Healthcare magazine as the “most powerful person in healthcare” in 2007. More recently, in 2010, Time magazine listed her about the “100 Most Influential People” in the world.

    The U.S. Catholic bishops are spreading moral confusion by their failure to act to quell the pronouncements of dissident figures who advertise their Catholicity while taking moral stands that directly oppose Church teaching. The loss of obedience as a principle of Church governance in the U.S. is destroying the credibility of the Church. In the case of Sister Carol, Cardinal Donald Wuerl continues to act as politician, rather than bishop, to the detriment of DC Catholics.

    I can only repeat: Who is her superior?"

    More important is the fact that she is seriously at odds with our Lord's teaching. Can someone explain to me how she remains a 'Catholic' religious? Who is her superior?
