JOHN ALLEN'S NCR'S INTERVIEW WITH CARDINAL LEVADA OF THE CDF ON THE LCWR
This is John Allen's final question in his interview with the CDF's head, Cardinal Levada, BUT YOU CAN READ THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW BY PRESSING HERE.
John Allen: Is there any other point you would like to make?
Cardinal Levada: I'd like to say a word about obedience. In the church, the pope is the superior, ultimately, and obedience has been an integral part of the evangelical counsels and of religious life from the beginning. This process is also an invitation to obedience for the sisters in LCWR as representatives of their groups. They call their own sisters to obedience when they need to, and that's an appeal I would want to make to them now, to look at this as a deeper living out of their own vowed life and the vow of obedience.
