My sympathy goes to many US nuns who feel slighted or offended by the concluding statement or evaluation from the Vatican. The Vatican does what it does, and history clearly bares it, this is not the first time that Vatican censures a Catholic entity, individuals etc. I am just wondering if the frenzy could have been avoided or mitigated a little bit had the Vatican statement came out or delivered a little more discretely. Like parents correcting a child, it seems always psychologically proven effective to do it in private, behind close doors. I wonder if this could have been handled this way, a healthy conversation could have taken place rather than the media frenzy, which has been badly weighed in by many less initiated and informed writers and individuals, especially non-catholics, who under the guise of advocacy for the "aggrieved," are underneath just motivated to pit the Vatican against its precious and highly esteemed membership. There's no doubt there couldn't be more of an eye-catching news in our times than stuffs which contribute to the tearing down of an organization which has survived more than 2000 years of challenges from without, if I may add, and from within. Just to cite a particular banal journalistic dynamics that many media are employing: see the statement clearly praises, commends and esteems the great achievement and whole- hearted dedication of our beloved "sisters" to the mission of the Church and of Christ. Yet, for the business-driven western journalism, that is insignificant; a dog bites the person! what's the fun in that? That's not news. Expectedly, they have to scour rotten apples from the basket, thus sensationalizes the "censure" and totally ignores the praise aspect. This is an internal matter, even more internal than involving the Universal Catholic Church, the Vatican should have personally delivered their statement to the concerned and should have also predicted some sensitive conversation that expectedly ensues thereafter. Public damage-control response, whatever it is that Vatican is doing at the moment, could have been avoided. It would not have been necessary for the bridge to be built had not the river been created first. That's just me. Thanks for reading.
