Ahhhhhh ... it didn't take you long to discover a major catholic dissenter, so 'well respected' by the world! And the liberal elements within the church supports each other. Chittester's book is endorsed by (former) Archbishop Rembert Weakland. He's so modest that he set up his own web site. This, after destroying the Milwaukee Cathedral.

(When you have done something good, remember the words "without Me you can do nothing." (John 15:5).)
:) When I first heard of this "sister", I was still Anglican. I picked up one of her works a few years ago just out of curiosity. Within reading one chapter, it was clear that she was what I call a "romanized episcopagan" and no real Catholic and into the trash went her tome! I told a Catholic friend of mine about my discovery and he told me I'd hit one of the three major mother lodes of dissent, the "sister" herself, "fr." Greeley, and "fr." McBrien. Learned back then that I'd have to do the filtering thing with Catholic works and authors, just as I had to do when I was Evangelical and when I was Anglican. As for Weakland and what he did to the Milwaukee Cathedral......nothing but a bloody carpetbagging gentile yankee would do what he did to that place! Talk about "Ugly as Sin!"
I am not defending the Sister... but Archbishop Weakland also endorsed the historian Christopher Dawson's book who was one of Catholics finest...
