In April 2012, to the dismay of much of the thinking world, the Vatican publicly scolded the Leadership Conference of Women Religious for lapses in dogma and practice, a backhanded slap at the inclusive tendencies of American Catholicism, particularly cruel when directed at women who have so little power within the Church as it is. These women and the orders they represent do the work among the poor that is the work of the Gospels. This is a selection of ten keynote addresses from their annual meetings, culminating in Sister Pat Farrell's measured, courageous response to the Vatican's rebuke. VERDICT Any idea of nuns as out of touch or ill-informed is rapidly overturned by this stirring set of speeches; these women, and their orders, are as true Christians as can be found in our country, and the inherent story here of their moral growth should be of interest to all American Catholics, to women's groups, and to Vatican watchers.
