Sinsinawa Dominican Wacko

Thoughts scarfed this up.

A Dominican nun has been seen frequenting an abortion facility in Hinsdale, Illinois recently - but not, as one might expect, to pray for an end to abortion or to counsel women seeking abortions, but to volunteer as a clinic escort.

Local pro-life activists say that they recognized the escort at the ACU Health Center as Sr. Donna Quinn, a nun outspokenly in favor of legalized abortion, after seeing her photo in a Chicago Tribune article

Sr. Patricia Mulcahey, OP, Quinn's Prioress at the Sinsinawa Dominican community, said in an email response to LSN that the nun sees her volunteer activity as "accompanying women who are verbally abused by protestors. Her stance is that if the protestors were not abusive, she would not be there."

Though Sr. Mulcahey claimed that her sisters "support the teachings of the Catholic Church," she declined to comment on Quinn's public protest of Catholic Church teaching.

Those nuns operated a nominally-Catholic HS in Racine for years--they still might, for all I know.

I decided to start spending Tuesdays as a special day of prayer, fasting, and penance. I will offer it for the conversion of Sr. Quinn and the healing that the Catholic Church is in so desperate need of these days.

I am planning on asking other Catholics to join me & to notify the prioress of this nun and/or the diocese.

The prioress of this nun has contact information at the bottom of the article referenced.

Given what I know from personal experience, this doesn't surprize me. Disgust yes, surprize no. I swear you can almost hear Blessed Fr. Samuel Mazzuchelli OP turning over in his grave here in DBQ.
