By all accounts, Sister Jane Dominic Laurel is an accomplished theologian and teacher. She is a graduate of the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome, a university under the direct authority of the Holy See. Sister Laurel has been on the faculty of Aquinas College in Nashville, Tennessee, for some time, and is a widely respected theologian, particularly in Pope John Paul II’s theology of the body. Sister’s website features a number of free video courses on family and sexuality. In those presentations Sister is kind, prayerful, and patient. She is obviously an excellent scholar and teacher.
But woe to Sister Laurel. She has crossed swords with what Michael Voris calls the “Church of Nice,” and a firestorm has erupted.
