LCWR Plans "The Life Of Junia" Project

(AoftheAP) In what is shaping up to be an endless campaign to strengthen public support in their conflict with the Vatican over issues of reform, the LCWR (Leadership Conference of Women Religious) has begun work on a new public awareness project modeled after the Obama/Biden 2012 Campaign “The Life Of Julia”.

They are calling the project “The Life Of Junia”, and according to LCWR Director of Dialogue, Sr. Heidi Highdeehoh, the fictional woman’s name of the project comes directly from Scripture.

“We’re basing her on the woman mentioned in Paul’s Letter to the Romans,” Sr Heidi said.  “She was a great apostle in her own right, and we are drawing upon her wisdom and grace to lead us in our battle against the patriarchal forces of the Vatican.”

AoftheA has been granted permission to publish several of the slides of the upcoming project:

“We were so impressed with the clarity, truth and honesty of “The Life of Julia” project.  Modeling our project after the president’s was a complete no-brainer,” Sr. Heidi explained.  “The LCWR is interested in helping and encouraging and reaffirming women of any age, at any stage of their lives, and this slideshow is helpful to show exactly where we stand.  There shouldn’t be any question whatsoever about what the LCWR is all about, once “The Life Of Junia” is released.”

The project is tentatively scheduled to launch May 17, St Junia’s traditional commemoration day.

    Scariest part? I only realized it was satire when I read the tags!

    Love this, but Larry, do you have too much time on your hands?

    At 16, Junia is in Catholic High School run by LCWR sisters who are so encouraging. When Julia notices a drama teaching working for Planned Parenthood, she informs the bishop who without requesting a dialog, callously orders the school to fire the teacher. LCWR helps Julia navigate this period by expelling her to give her time to reflect on the mission of the sisters to sing a new Church into being.

    Under the Vatican: Prophetic women like the drama teacher would not even be able to work there in the first place.

    Larry, once again I am in the library resisting the urge to ROTFLOL.
    Please don’t give them any ideas at the LCWR. I can see them running with this, esp with the debate over is the person Junia or Junias, is the person a he or she & what does “prominant among the apostles” mean.

    PS. Noticed a small typo below the last slide, you have Julia instead of Junia. Glad to see I am nae the only one to make typos.

      Al – Sr Heidi Highdyhoh is referring to the O’s “Life of Julia”. If the good sister had provided a more concise quote, I think any confusion would have been avoided. 🙂

    Pure genius, Larry! LMAO!

    Pure genius indeed!

    Larry, Larry, you got me good. It’s a shame though, isn’t it that it’s so plausible. I knew that sister’s name was not real, but it was early in the morning and I was in a hurry. I will never post anything before work again. Still, pray for Archbishop Sartain.
