St. Teresa of Avila, Reformer of the Carmelites

According to Press TV, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has launched an investigation to check the orthodoxy of views on homosexuality and priesthood that are held by female religious congregations throughout the United States of America.

According to this source, “Vatican officials have asked the American sisters to report on the initiatives taken or planned to promote the church’s teachings on the exclusively male character of the priesthood, the primacy of the Catholic Church over other Christian denominations, and the ” ‘problem of homosexuality.’ ”

Based on this evidence, the CDF is clearly to make sure that the sisters and nuns are not in any way deviating from those thing commonly believed by the Church as a whole. Namely that the priesthood is only for men and not women as well as the fact that homosexuality cannot be tolerated.

It is too early for me to say what the outcome of these discussions will be. Perhaps, there will be a great deal of good fruit. Only God knows.

Our Lady of the Angels, pray for us!
