Nuns on the Bus leader answers Pope Francis

The following opinion piece by Simone Campbell, leader of Nuns on the Bus, was published April 19 on the Washington Post website.

I would be lying if I wrote that I was not hurt by thereaffirmation of the censure of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) and by extension of NETWORK, the Catholic social justice lobby that I lead. I had hoped that the censure would quietly disappear in an Italian bureaucratic way. But this is not to be. Rather we are to continue to be caught in macro-church-politics of a group of Catholics at odds with the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF).
