Sr. Simone have you read Mt 25:1-13?

Sr. Simone says abortion is above her paygrade. What good do the LCWR nuns do? Do they teach like the Nashville Dominicans? Do they serve the poor --- and let's be honest, real poor people don't live in pleasant or safe places--- like the Missionaries of Charity? Do they take care of the aged like the Little Sisters of the Poor? 

Do they dedicate themselves to Marylike behavior and charity like the Sister Servants of the Virgin? Do they take care of cancer patients like the Hawthorne Dominicans? Do they teach and nurse and look after refugees like the wonderful Handmaids of the Holy Child Jesus?  Do they take care of the homeless like the Little Sisters of Jesus and Mary? Do they dedicate themselves to prayer and reparation like the Handmaids of the Precious Blood?

Do the LCWR nuns do anything beyond riding around in luxury buses making nuisances of themselves?

Dymphna, the Sr. Simone types just like to moan and wail about poverty and injustice. If they were actually asked to do something practical about either, they would probably sneer that's just putting a band-aid on the problems.

I suppose they do say the hours?

Or what is left of it after liturgic reforms. 150 psalms in two weeks rather than in one as per older discipline.

I suppose Sr Simone may have said one or two of her hours (at least) with some real devotion (unless God counts her soul as that of a heretic, which so far I don't know) and that for some good intention.
