Nuns Worry about Vatican Oversight

A group representing Roman Catholic sisters in the United States is raising concerns about why the Vatican is investigating them and who is funding the inquiry.

The Leadership Conference of Women Religious says in a statement Monday that they want more specifics about the review from Vatican leaders.

The investigation was shrouded in mystery when it was announced earlier this year.
It's shaping up to be a tough look at whether the roughly 59,000 U.S. Catholic sisters have strayed too from church teachings. In the last few decades, they have become more like social activists than Catholics nuns, promoting womens issues and other liberal causes that often conflict with official church doctrine.

The Vatican recently released a working paper for the inquiry that said it is meant as a constructive review of the quality of life and work of the women's communities.
