Reporting on US women religious who are not in conflict with the Vatican
August 23, 2012
David Gibson provides a generally sympathetic report on women religious belonging to the Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious (CMSWR), the umbrella group for religious orders that do not belong to the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR)—although a few orders belong to both groups.
While the LCWR has been the subject of Vatican scrutiny and criticism, the CMSWR—which represents more traditional orders—has no such conflict with Rome. The CMSWR orders also boast larger numbers of young women entering their communities.
