And how can a religious order that is focused by name on "perpetual adoration" of our risen Lord disobey Holy Mother Church by ditching the habit? Notice in the video below that our Eucharistic Lord isn't mentioned much. His name comes up only once in the context of water massage. (I am not kidding!) This group sound like a bunch of liberal ladies, very nice probably, but, in view of their website, gone off the deep end. I can just hear them discussing God as she and altering the language of scripture to make it gender neutral. Here's a sample from their page on ecological advocacy (my comments in red):
We celebrate God’s presence in all of creation by:The sisters in La Crosse are clearly off base. Pray for them, but stay clear, very clear of their influence. You don't want to be standing next to a house built on sand during a hurricane.
•Honoring relationships with and promoting earth as sacred. No, ladies, the earth is not "sacred." God proclaimed it "good" and we have a duty to be faithful stewards, but the pagans were the ones who believed in earth-gods. Earth worship (we worship what is "sacred") is heretical.
•Devoting spiritual energies and economic resources to the care of God’s creation. How about caring for babies waiting to be born? They are the "pearls of great price," but your "social justice" program ignores them.
•Nurturing and increasing cosmic awareness and social consciousness. What the heck is "cosmic awareness?" Is this the heresy of the "cosmic Christ" spouted by the likes of Matthew Fox? In view of your new agey website and your support for Reiki, I must assume so.
•Educating members to advocacy: political involvement, social change, sustainability and healthy lifestyles. Ah...here we have it. The christian life is about protecting the earth from global warming, saving the wetlands, and banning Big Macs. Note the word "sustainability" which is the same language used by the population controllers to justify abortion and birth control in the third world.
