You may have read or heard that there is some controversy over a recent Vatican Doctrinal Assessment of the U.S. Sisters and Nuns, and specifically the organization that represents most Religious Sisters in the U.S., called the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (or LCWR for short). It is good to stay informed on these things.

Here are two videos, each about 8 minutes long, each by a different U.S. Catholic Priest, that represent varying approaches to this controversy:

One is by Fr. James Martin, S.J., the editor of America Magazine. You can see him at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALx-eolC1FI&feature=youtu.be

The other is by popular Catholic author and spokesman, Fr. Robert Barron, who teaches at Mundelein Seminary in the Archdiocese of Chicago. He can be seen at http://te-deum.blogspot.com/2012/04/fr-robert-barron-explains-lcwr.html

Watching both of these will give you a broader view of the entire controversy.

God bless!
