Jesuit pope offers hope to some targeted nuns
VATICAN CITY (AP) — The election of a Jesuit pope devoted to the poor and stressing a message of mercy rather than condemnation has brought a glimmer of hope to American nuns who have been the subject of a Vatican crackdown, according to interviews with several groups. The nuns were accused of having focused too much on social justice at the expense of other church issues such as abortion.'Stressing a message of mercy rather than condemnation...' no doubt an attack on Benedict's papacy. I am beginning to think that the Vatican should refute these Francis vs. Benedict hit pieces streaming out of the AP. These nuns have ditched more than their habits.
