Interview with nun leading apostolic visitation of American women religious
February 19, 2010
Mother Clare Millea, the American nun who was chosen by the Vatican to head an apostolic visitation of American women's religious orders, spoke to John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter about the progress of that inquiry. Although she acknowledges some resistance to the process, Mother Millea reports that she has received responses from virtually all US congregations. She is now planning visits to specific congregations-- eventually covering about 100 communities-- before preparing a final report to the Congregation for Religious.
