Ad supporting American nuns

 |  NCR Today

I have contact with a wide interfaith swath of the population, and just about everyone: Muslim, Jew, Episcopalian, Methodist, Buddhist… you name it… wants to know what I think of the Vatican investigation of American nuns.

People, I find, are scratching their heads trying to figure out what in the world the Vatican is looking for in a group of women whose labor literally built the American church as we know it, and who continue to serve that church, especially the poor, with visible selflessness.

Well, the Quixote Center is offering everyone an opportunity to voice their views about American nuns in an ad that will appear in the National Catholic Reporter when it is complete. It chronicles the legacy and work of American nuns from the days of the frontier to the urban immigrant slums to the extensive work for justice and peace today.
