Seems as if Ken Briggs had already used the phrase “Double-Crossed” as a title under which to describe the treatment of women religious by the Vatican. I certainly did not use his title intentionally, though it would be harder to argue that it wasn’t lurking these somewhere in the back of my head. Just goes to show you what an effective title it is! Imitation is the highest form of praise, etc. Apologies, Ken.
And while I’m still on the topic of Catholic sisters, let me add that my former student, Benedictine Sister Suzanne Fitzmaurice, has written to say that her community at Mt. St. Scholastica monastery in Atchison, Kansas, is going to be featured on Religion and Ethics Newsweekly next Sunday evening. There’s a preview on the Religion and Ethics Newsweekly webpage. I suggest we all tune in and see what one of the congregations being investigated by the Vatican is up to!
