"Her 148-year-old Erie community follows the Rule of St. Benedict, a sixth-century guidebook for monastic life based on the values 'of work, holy leisure, stewardship, community, humility and peace.'"

"'I can't not be Catholic!' she exclaims, calling her church a 'treasure house' of culture, history, tradition and discipline that "develops the soul.'"

"Chittister and others argue that [the male only priesthood is] a historic, human tradition."
