Vatican Investigation of LCWR formally closed

This is worth celebrating, and I wish to post a quote from the press release by the director of Call to Action here. It sums up the entire ordeal:

“The bold and faithful witness of women religious, their leadership, gifts and charisms are pivotal for the life of our Church. We give thanks that this painful experience appears to have finally come to an end” said Jim FitzGerald, Call To Action’s Executive Director. “We continue to stand with the sisters and hope today’s action opens the door for a more equal relationship between women leaders and Vatican officials.”
FitzGerald went on to say that women religious taught us well.
“Even as the Vatican's unjust mandate backed the LCWR into a corner, women religious taught us what it is like to stand tall with integrity and courage. They modeled how to be a Church of relationship, dialogue, and consensus-building.  All the while, they never wavered on what was most important to them, their fundamental values, mission and vision. This is the epitome of faith-based leadership.”
Call To Action and thousands of Catholics around the country give thanks and praise for women religious and the work they do to usher into today’s world the reign of God.

Thanks, Mike...so glad you found it here. I think it's remarkable. Holly's grandmother is one of my long and close friends; it was she who sent it.

Thanks for posting this. I heard it read from Abbey Theatre in their "Dear Ireland" and was hoping that I would find it on the web. I thought it stole the show.
