Religious sister reportedly called on participants at the Leadership Conference of Women Religious to a “cosmological rethink” of Christianity as evolving with the world.
Sister Ilia Delio, O.S.F., director of Catholic studies and a visiting professor at Georgetown University in Washington, reportedly called on participants at the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) to a “cosmological rethink” of Christianity as evolving with the world, according to The National Catholic Register.
Speaking to the organization which had been warned by the Vatican about straying from Catholic teaching, Sr. Delio was reportedly vague about the future of this evolutionary Church, but she invited the women to something quite unusual:
“‘Nothing is more awesome than to give birth to God,’ she said.”
“Literally, we are stardust,” Sr. Delio reportedly said, and later, “we are on the cusp of an evolutionary breakthrough—one that requires our conscious participation as co-creative agents of love, midwives of the new creation.”
