I am like a child at Christmas I am so excited, I am bringing this blog to the top of the heap because I know now how to post videos and these videos are great! I thank Miss Ellen E. who left the very simple directions that I could actually follow on the comment site of a previous blog! I am most grateful and besides myself that I can do this. This is my second attempt at posting videos, but my first attempt at multiple choices! Below this blog, after the Pope's long arm, is my first attempt at posting a video! Unlike the four on this blog which are very heart warming and edifying, the one below is shocking, depressing and sad and unfortunately shows something that is all to common in our Masses today, so scroll down for that after you watch these at the end of my revised post on the subject.
The recent appearance of the Dominican Sisters on Oprah Winfrey is posted below! The appearance and interview are excellent. Kudos to Oprah, and to the Sisters! Do you think these sisters are on the right track of "renewal" that Vatican II actually encouraged? And to the dying breed, who chose a path of pseudo-renewal, actually a path of destruction that compromised their legacy, well, it is sad indeed. We need sisters and sisters have been and still are or can be the back bone of the Roman Catholic Church! The love and respect that generations of Catholics till this very day have for the hard work, dedication, faithfulness and obedience of sisters is marvelous to behold! We love our sisters! And evidently Oprah loves them, her assistant who produced the show loves them, Protestants love them, Jews love them, Pagans love them! We want them back like there were and can be today, the proof is in the pudding! These are sisters who love their life in the convent, have no apparent ax to grind against our Church and her leaders, i.e. pope, bishops and men in general. They are aware of the culture in which we live that conspires against chastity, poverty and obedience. They wear their "wedding garment" perpetually to show a skeptical world the "in breaking of the Kingdom which is to be completed at the Second Coming!" The garb and more importantly their lives as sisters which is a public witness on so many levels is quite frankly the "eschatological" dimension of the Woman and Men Religious when they take seriously their call the serve the Church, both clergy and laity, in humble obedience to Christ. Yes, we want our Sisters and we love them!
