Memorial of St. Therese of the Child of Jesus
Italian Archbishop Giovanni Battista Pichierri has received permission from the Vatican to close the 44-year old Santa Clara convent near Bari, Italy following a physical altercation last July amongst the convent's final three members. The archbishop concluded in August that the nuns had "clearly lost their religious vocation" and asked the Vatican for permission to close the convent.
This, of course, gives credence to Sally Field's claim that there would be no war if (real) mothers ran the show. The Catholic Church has to expect these kinds of things when they don't allow sexually active women priests.
