    Real Catholic Nuns Praise LA Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for their ‘Work of Mercy’

    - Advertisement -

    The Los Angeles Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will be honored by the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodgers Stadium during Pride Night next week on Friday, June 16. The sisters who have been embroiled in controversy for dressing in drag nun habits, were criticized by religious leaders like Catholic League’s Bill Donohue and politicians like Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, which led to the LA Dodgers rescinding their invitation to honor the group with a Community Hero Award.

    The Drag Nuns received support from all corners of the country, however there was group that they say was very unexpted… real Catholic nuns. It turns out one of the Sisters of Loretto, a Roman Catholic congregation of religious women, Sr. Jeannine Gramick, wrote to the Dodgers shortly after the controversy in support of their decision to give the Community Hero Award to the Drag Nuns,

    The letter by the Loretto Sr. reads as follows:

    “Dear friends,

    I am aware of the controversy regarding the L.A. Dodgers and the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

    I am a member of the Sisters of Loretto, a Roman Catholic congregation of women religious, have been a Catholic nun for more than 60 years, and ministered to and with the LGBTQ Catholic community for more than 50 years.

    While I am uncomfortable with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence using the nuns’ old garb to draw attention to bigotry, whether Catholic or not, there is a hierarchy of values in this situation. The choice of clothing, even if offensive to some, can never trump the works of mercy.

    Just as I have great respect for Catholic nuns because of their compassion and good works over the centuries, I applaud the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for their financial assistance to those in need. I support them because of all their good works. I believe that any group that serves the community, especially those who are less fortunate or on the margins of society, should be honored.

    I support your honoring the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

    Peace,

    Sr. Jeannine Gramick, SL, May 27, 2023”

    The letter, along with various conversations with community leaders helped defuse the situation. The LA Dodgers had a change of heart and apologized to the LA Sisters and re-invited them to take their place in the field and accept their award next week.

    When I was a child nuns were perky (sound of music) and some could even fly! Singing nuns etc. But now, the magic is gone and they don’t dress the way they used to. Now when I see a station wagon full of nuns drive by I think “they just look like a bunch of frumpy Lesbians.” WHICH IS WHAT THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN

    First off Silky Kween, what is a “station wagon????” Secondly, nuns can’t be lesbians just as priests can’t be gay.
