Screwtape Applauds Sr Jane Marie Klein

Every­one who acknowl­edges me before oth­ers I will acknowl­edge before my heav­enly Father. But who­ever denies me before oth­ers, I will deny before my heav­enly Father.

Matthew 10:3233

You know there are very few things more depress­ing when on a pil­grim­age to the grave of a nun who built an orga­ni­za­tion pro­claim­ing the truth of catholic faith to the world to read about this:

Sr Jane Marie Klein, told AP the name changes are in keep­ing with the mis­sion of the Sis­ters of St Fran­cis of Per­pet­ual Ado­ra­tion, which founded the hos­pi­tal system.

What name change is Sr. Jane Marie Klein say­ing is in keep­ing with the mis­sion of the Sis­ters of St. Fran­cis of Per­pet­ual ado­ra­tion? Why remov­ing the “saint” out of hos­pi­tal names that she runs.

The health care sys­tem that over­sees the Illi­nois and Indi­ana hos­pi­tals has deter­mined that drop­ping the saint names will strengthen the brand iden­tity of the sys­tem as a whole, accord­ing to the Indi­anapo­lis Busi­ness Journal.

Unsainted” hos­pi­tals include those that had incor­po­rated the names of St James, St Anthony, St Eliz­a­beth, St Mar­garet, and St Francis.

Because noth­ing bet­ter illus­trates the mis­sion of Catholic nuns like ditch the saints and the Catholic iden­tity they allude to.

It seems she fol­lowed the exact path that Screw­tape suggested.

qui­etly and grad­u­ally nurse him on to the stage at which the reli­gion becomes merely part of the “cause”… Once you have made the World an end, and faith a means, you have almost won your man, and it makes very lit­tle dif­fer­ence what kind of worldly end he is pursuing.

This entire story might seem con­fus­ing. While the Hos­pi­tals will dis­cover that like God, the saints will not force them­selves on those who don’t want them and will, how­ever reluc­tantly agree to stay away, you would think that given the pur­pose of a hos­pi­tal is to treat the sick, the aid of the Hospital’s patron would be very valu­able. Of course that pre­sumes actual belief and unfor­tu­nately I’ve dis­cov­ered belief is not longer a given among the pro­fessed religious.

Exit ques­tion, who wants to bet that the Hos­pi­tals don’t remove the “St.” when try­ing to fundraise from faith­ful Catholics?

Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father.

Matthew 10:32-33

You know there are very few things more depressing when on a pilgrimage to the grave of a nun who built an organization proclaiming the truth of catholic faith to the world to read about this:

Sr Jane Marie Klein, told AP the name changes are in keeping with the mission of the Sisters of St Francis of Perpetual Adoration, which founded the hospital system.

What name change is Sr. Jane Marie Klein saying is in keeping with the mission of the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual adoration? Why removing the “saint” out of hospital names that she runs.

The health care system that oversees the Illinois and Indiana hospitals has determined that dropping the saint names will strengthen the brand identity of the system as a whole, according to the Indianapolis Business Journal.

“Unsainted” hospitals include those that had incorporated the names of St James, St Anthony, St Elizabeth, St Margaret, and St Francis.

Because nothing better illustrates the mission of Catholic nuns like ditch the saints and the Catholic identity they allude to.

It seems she followed the exact path that Screwtape suggested.

quietly and gradually nurse him on to the stage at which the religion becomes merely part of the “cause”… Once you have made the World an end, and faith a means, you have almost won your man, and it makes very little difference what kind of worldly end he is pursuing.

This entire story might seem confusing. While the Hospitals will discover that like God, the saints will not force themselves on those who don’t want them and will, however reluctantly agree to stay away, you would think that given the purpose of a hospital is to treat the sick, the aid of the Hospital’s patron would be very valuable. Of course that presumes actual belief and unfortunately I’ve discovered belief is not longer a given among the professed religious.

Exit question, who wants to bet that the Hospitals don’t remove the “St.” when trying to fundraise from faithful Catholics?
