"Nun excommunicated over Phoenix hospital abortion - CathNewsUSA"There are bishops and cardinals who know what Catholic teachings are, and give a rip about them. It's not easy, being Catholic when the local culture hates what we stand for: Kudos to Bishop Thomas Olmsted of Phoenix, Arizona.

"A Bishop who is a real shepherd, i.e., one who corrects and disciplines as well as teaches and protects. One could say Bishop Thomas Olmsted of Phoenix, Arizona, is a MANLY Bishop (not macho, but strong --- FORZA, as we would say in Italian). No one relishes impo[s]ing penal sanctions on anyone, least of all on a nun, but at the same time, to ignore a nun's participation in abortion would have been tantamount to gross spiritual negligence if not indirect participation in evil (through silence).
"Sister McBride should know well Catholic morality is adamant: the ends never justifies the means. Evil may NEVER be directly intended...."
