The Power of the Veil
Thanks to Fr Zed for the link, the American Pro-Choice Vice President Biden visit some nuns under the charge of the the Dubuque location is the motherhouse of LCWR president Sr. Patricia Farrell, OSF. The article based on the Vice President's press release doesn't say whether the strident Sr Pat was there, in fact it carefully avoids it but the picture, is a traditional(ish) looking nun, with a cardigan and veil, not a business suit, not a trouser suit, but a veil!
Isn't it interesting that when even the British press when the want to damn the Vatican's condemnation of the LCWR they choose pictures of Europeans looking like, err nuns, yet I have never seen an image of a veil at the LCWR, ever.
