  •  One of the two churches (7+ / 0-)

    I attend is managed by Franciscans.  It is so progressive that years ago the diocese wanted to shut it down, raze the Church (oldest catholic church in the city) and sell the property to an insurance company for a parking lot.

    Sad, sad.  Too bad the Church was and is supported by very wealthy and influential Catholics, Protestants and Jews.  

    And of course, as a former nun who loves her community still, I do know that many, many nuns have ignored the hierarchy for decades.  Actually, centuries for my community.
