You may have seen that the LA Dodgers honored the so-called Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence (SPI), which mock religious sisters, Jesus, and our Catholic faith. The California bishops condemned this action in a statement, but now, a State Senator has invited SPI to be honored on the floor of the California State Capitol on Monday, June 5th. Encouraging the ridicule of our faith - and, in a particular way, mocking religious sisters who sacrifice their lives as brides of Christ - is unacceptable. Join Bishop Soto, women religious, and our evangelical brothers and sisters for an ecumenical prayer vigil: Monday June 5, 2:00pm California State Capitol West Steps The event's tone is not political or confrontational but meant to be peaceful, hopeful, and honoring of the incredible work that religious sisters have done for so many years in California as a witness to the beauty of our faith. Please bring rosaries, and leave protest signs at home.
