Archbishop Edwin O'Brien of Baltimore argues, in a column for his archdiocesan newspaper, that American nuns have no reason for concern about the apostolic visitation currently underway. "As far as I can see, our women religious have nothing to fear from an apostolic visitation," the archbishop writes; "and I will do all I can to assist in making this a positive experience for all involved."

    Of course the "nuns" have nothing to fear from the apostolic visitation (investigation). They will continue on their merry way after the visit as did Nancy Pelosi after her papal visit.

    I wonder how the good Archbishop defines "positive experience?" If he means conversion of all involved leading to eternal happiness in heaven then I am all for it. However, if he means "feeling good" about the process, then I wish him utter failure.
