(Links fixed). Here are two profiles (both sympathetic) of two church leaders whose approach to dialogue and authority will be key factors in the ongoing Vatican review of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious. The first is a short piece in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel on Florence Deacon, OSF, the president-elect of the LCWR. The second, a longer piece by John L. Allen, Jr., in the National Catholic Reporter, is a profile of Bishop J. Peter Sartain, bishop of Seattle, who has been charged by the Vatican to be the "apostolic delegate" to the LCWR as it begins its reform.
