"In the church today, we are experiencing a dictatorial mindset and spiritual violence."     Sr. Theresa Kane
Dear Friends  

Please take a moment TODAY to show your support for US sisters who are facing an unprecedented investigation by the Vatican. We are very concerned about the secrecy and lack of due process in this investigation. Communities of women religious will not be permitted to see reports about them that will be submitted to the Vatican.  US sisters have been very faithful to the internal communal reforms called for by Vatican II.  They deserve our support.
Chris Schenk csj (for FutureChurch board and staff)

Tangled labyrinthine
paths of
yield, slowly
as Ruah's
freshening wind
whispers gently
the Way.

Come Holy Spirit,
Renew the face of our Church
