ROME, May 8, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) The Vatican is vigorously denying the existence of a public quarrel between the office in charge of religious orders and the doctrinal watchdog, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. A Joint Communiqué was issued yesterday by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and the Congregation for Religious, saying there is no disagreement over the way the CDF has handled the Vaticans investigation and reform attempts of the US nuns group, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR).
The hurried denial comes in the wake of a highly unusual statement on May 5th by Brazilian Cardinal Joao Braz de Aviz, prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, who told an international gathering of religious sisters that his office had not been consulted about the CDF investigation.

Reform the curia. lol
According to the prophecy, Pope Francis I is Peter the Great
The fact that there is a Cardinal (from South America) who is in attack mode, is a good thing, in my opinion.
You can't make scramble eggs without cracking the eggs out of their shells...
It sounds as if Cdl. de Aviz would have preferred (a) milder wording in the CDF report and (b) everything known and approved by him first.
It’s not clear from his garbleized bureau-speak whether he truly supports institutions of pro-abortion, socialist, non-Catholic women calling themselves “nuns,” or whether he’s just in a tiny fussness over the procedures. I’m leaning toward the latter.
Garbleized bureau-speak in a tiny fussness, fershure, Taxie.
Or do you prefer "Chickie"?
I’m usually called T-c, or TC for those who don’t want to bother with the hyphen.
It’s possible the Cardinal has a Brazilian version of the Content-Free Sentence Generator (invented in North Carolina!), but being a knockoff, it’s imperfect and let a little bit of content in.
Tuft battle? Probably or most definitely.
But a cardinal whose title puts him over religious nuns, brothers, and priests should be incensed over pro-abortion nuns, brothers, and priests.
There was a Catholic priest who was ex-communicated in South America for coming out in favor of homosexual marriage.
I consider this to be similar to that ex-communication: this cardinal wants to clean house!
Bottom line: if I was responsible for something, I would want to clean house — no matter who else is also cleaning my house...
Good way of putting it.
