8 Themes of the LCWR Worldview

April 28th, 2012, Promulgated by Bernie

Here is a really good post by Fr. Philip Neri Powell, OP, Ph.D. on his blog Domine, da mihi hanc aquam!

Given recent developments on the CDF/LCWR front, I thought I’d repost about a piece from April of 2009 on some of the presidential addresses delivered at the LCWR annual assemblies.  2012 editions are bracketed in red.]

    Here’s a question for the more detective-minded among us. If you click on:

    a black logo-type cross will come up, next to the LCWR Board to discuss…. On the cross is a word (or 2?) I am wondering if someone with better technology can determine what it says. I went to 800% and color contrast and there is clearly a blacked-out word there.

    Also, notice the cross in the browser in front of LCWR’s address. Isn’t putting a cross in front of a name reserved for use by a bishop?

    I appreciate the grabbing of that graphic. Fr Z mentioned that a lot of, er, interesting materials on their site was being taken down, and encouraged such gumshoeing.

    Please see tonight’s Real Catholic TV:

    and enjoy the exposition on the ills fostered by nuns now the subject of the Vatican crackdown, and the slap on the wrist to America Magazine’s Jesuit, Fr. James Martin.

    All I can say is a big AMEN!

    I think the hidden coded message in the white cross says, ” Drop your hemlines by six inches”.

    I see that, too, Raymond. +JMJ
