Naive dualism Oct 4, 2000
Here is yet another work from the anti-Catholic Catholic. The good sister insists that she loves the church---she really does---but she ends up attacking the basic teaching of the church as a sad relic of patriarchy. The analysis is a cartoon of hero dissenters (pro-abortion nuns, Charlie Curran) and retrograde popes (guess who!) bound by Polish peasant prejudice.
If you're looking for a truly Catholic presentation on conscience, read John Paul II's Veritatis Splendor.
Anne Patrick, PhD: A Woman of Faith, Passion, and Devotion Apr 24, 1999
Anne Patrick was a professor of mine during Winter term 1999 at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. Our course was entitled Religion and Modern Literature, and over the course of the term, Professor Patrick proved to be a brilliant lecturer, a person of true faith and devotion, a dedicated educator, and a genine friend, evincing selfless concern for her students even amid personal challenges. Her recent book is an extension of a life of faith amid opposition, the resolute voice of a woman dedicated to change within the Church, one not about to lose her faith or devotion despite barriers erected in the name of tradition or authority. I would highly recommend the book not just to Catholics or to individuals interested in issues in Women's Studies, but to all people of faith, struggling, doubting, re-evaluating, or otherwise.
