Here's a question going around the Catholic blogosphere today, one that involves a study in contrasts. The first picture is from a meeting of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, the so-called "progressive wing" living the spirit of Vatican II.
The second is from a new order established in Michigan, The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, a so-called "traditional" order presumedly stuck in the Dark Ages that were the 1950s or before.
The question is: which demonstrates the future of the Church? One is still hanging in there after all these years. The other has more years upon which to be hanging.
You do the math.
