(AoftheAP) In what is shaping up to be an endless campaign to strengthen public support in their conflict with the Vatican over issues of reform, the LCWR (Leadership Conference of Women Religious) has begun work on a new public awareness project modeled after the Obama/Biden 2012 Campaign “The Life Of Julia”.
They are calling the project “The Life Of Junia”, and according to LCWR Director of Dialogue, Sr. Heidi Highdeehoh, the fictional woman’s name of the project comes directly from Scripture.
“We’re basing her on the woman mentioned in Paul’s Letter to the Romans,” Sr Heidi said. “She was a great apostle in her own right, and we are drawing upon her wisdom and grace to lead us in our battle against the patriarchal forces of the Vatican.”
AoftheA has been granted permission to publish several of the slides of the upcoming project:
“We were so impressed with the clarity, truth and honesty of “The Life of Julia” project. Modeling our project after the president’s was a complete no-brainer,” Sr. Heidi explained. “The LCWR is interested in helping and encouraging and reaffirming women of any age, at any stage of their lives, and this slideshow is helpful to show exactly where we stand. There shouldn’t be any question whatsoever about what the LCWR is all about, once “The Life Of Junia” is released.”
The project is tentatively scheduled to launch May 17, St Junia’s traditional commemoration day.
