On the Vatican-Nun Controversy

Many U.S. Catholic nuns cite the Second Vatican Council as justification for adopting doctrines and practices at odds with official church teaching.  Pope John Paul II expressed criticism of that development, and Pope Benedict XVI has confirmed the critique. Nevertheless, many Vatican II-based nuns continue along the projection begun in their interpretation of Vatican II’s findings. In a ten-minute news video prepared for Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, a source for cutting-edge reporting and analysis of events in the religious world, correspondent Kim Lawton explores the abiding disagreement.  A set of additional videos provide excerpts from women interviewed for the news article. Sister Mary Joseph Heisler explores what it means to be a woman religious in the Catholic Church. Sister Mary Hughes expands on her appreciation for Vatican II. Sister Maureen Fiedler questions how close will be the future bond between U.S. Catholics and the Vatican. Professor Colleen Carroll Campbell explores what are legitimate changes and what are secular values. Professor Colleen McDannell explores what it means to be a renewing and adapting faith community in the modern world.
