image for Vatican Tries to Control U.S. Nuns; Nuns React
Sister Act gets plaudits from the world, boos from the Vatican

The world was shocked this week when the Vatican criticized an organization of U.S. nuns because of church doctrine issues.

And there's more. A U.S. Archbishop (poor soul!) was appointed to oversee the actions of this organization of nuns.

Many of the good Sisters are taking these developments with a grain of salt, reacting by merely making comments such as the following: "Boys will be boys," "Fiddledeedee," "Huh?" "Oy vey!" and "Good grief."

Some of the nuns, however, feel that a work stoppage is in order. Perhaps a one-day "sickout" (or a fun-for-a-nun day) when the nuns let male clerics fill in for the day in jobs at U.S. Catholic hospitals, schools, day care centers, nursing homes, etc. One nun commented with a laugh, "And I suggest that when they report for work on that day, the Cardinals leave their red hats, beanies, and rings -- in fact, all their ceremonial garb -- at home."

As support floods in from all over the world for the hard work and Christ-like endeavors of U.S. nuns, male Vatican officials are ducking for cover and considering ways to deal with the public relations nightmare they've created. A high-ranking, 88-year-old, Italian Cardinal was heard to mutter, "Mamma, mia! I should have listened when Mamma told me never to talk back to a nun."
