LCWR Response to CDF Remarks

On April 30, the LCWR presidency (Carol Zinn, SSJ; Florence Deacon, OSF; Sharon Holland, IHM) and Janet Mock, CSJ, executive director met with Cardinal Gerhard Müller and officials of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Archbishop Sartain, apostolic delegate, was also present for the meeting. Cardinal Müller's opening remarks released by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith  accurately reflect the content of the mandate communicated to LCWR in April 2012. As articulated in the Cardinal's statement, these remarks were meant to set a context for the discussion that followed. The actual interaction with Cardinal Müller and his staff was an experience of dialogue that was respectful and engaging.
