The Associated Press published a story this weekend on the 3gf - Regnum Christi's so-called Consecrated Women. Hundreds of papers have picked up the story -- hopefully it will make more Catholics aware of the situation these women are in.
If you know anyone considering the 3gf, or considering sending her daughter to the school in Rhode Island, make sure she reads this article.
Discernment doesn't just mean warm fuzzy feelings. It means prayer and RESEARCH - faith and REASON.
If your daughter wanted to join the Franciscans, the sisters would suggest that she read up on their history and their founder and their way of life.
Do the same bare minimum BEFORE she gets involved with the 3gf!
