    What a smack in the face to LCWR and their ilk. A graduate of Steubenville, a canon lawyer, collaborator in the former See city of the bishop in charge of the LCWR investigation, coordinator of their huge building project -- and habited. And then this quote: "Both she and her religious community have shown a commitment to Catholic education that resonates with our conference and which has been a hallmark of the Catholic church in this country." Ouch! That had to hurt.
