Most Catholics, including sisters and bishops, are likely relieved that a certain investigation has come to a surprise end. Sisters, bishops, and pope had a meeting this week. A release is out. All that is left is the political spinning.
A sample of headlines shows people are wishful:
David Gibson at RNS: Vatican ends controversial investigation of US nuns with olive branch
Still, there are dissenters. Those who wanted to see heads roll got nothing. Those who think this is all a conspiracy against progressive Catholicism may continue to stew in self-made and unpleasant juices.
Is it a good result if a bunch of unrelated siblings have stomped off to the front porch together? My guess is yes.
