Today is the feast of St Scholastica.
She was the twin sister of St. Benedict, who wrote the Rule that monks & nuns of the various Benedictine orders have followed since the 6th Century AD.
Scholastica was the abbess of the 1st monastery for women. She deeply loved the Lord, so much so, that she got God to overrule her brother when he wanted to go back to his monastery rather than stay & continue their holy conversation. Benedict said no, she prayed & God sent a thunderstorm so he couldn't leave.
Anyhow, as a public service, here are some examples of her true daughters & those who are anything but because of their dissent & promotion of heresy.
Rev Mother Delores Hart Prioress of Abbey of Regina Laudis
, left a movie career to become a contemplative Benedictine. She is also the only nun who currently has voting rights for the Oscars.
Sr. Joan Chittister, promotes dissent from authentic Catholic teaching, women's ordination & wrote a commentary on the Rule of St Benedict that twists it to justify her heretical dissent.
Benedictines of Mary, Queen of the Apostles
@ the Priory of Our Lady of Ephesus. They raise the funds to support their monastery through making vestments,altar linens for Mass, among other items. They have also made 3 recordings of the music sung at the Priory. But their main mission is to offer their in prayer & sacrifice for priests.
These 3 women are the total number of women who claim to be Benedictines at Holy Wisdom Monastery in Madison. The one on the left isn't even a Catholic. As you can see from the picture below, the gang ships in womynpriests because Bishop Morlino has banned all priests of the diocese from saying Mass there due to their manifest promotion of dissent like women's ordination & New Age heresy.
The "reflection" at their Ash Wednesday liturgy will be given by Simone Campbell SSS. Campbell is the executive director of NETWORK, a group that has been criticized by the Vatican. Campbell also led the Nuns on the Bus who supported pro-abortion Obama in the past election.
I could give you many other examples, but I think you are now fully equipped to tell the difference between a woman who is truly a Spiritual Daughter of St. Scholastica & who claim they are but reject everything she believed in & stood for.
