Name that "Catholic" in this past week's news....

"'.... And even though I am Catholic I believe in contraceptives, just like the majority of Catholic women in the United States who report using contraceptives, and I shouldn't let that controversy be the thing that holds us back.'
As a result, she was able to raise $2.6 billion to help provide contraceptives for women in developing nations" ( http://www.vancouversun.com/mobile/story.html?id=9636267#ixzz2wbeQtSZa).

"Her photo is all over the Internet wearing her 'Nuns for Choice' shirt. She put those words into action by being an escort at an abortion business for several years" ( http://www.ncregister.com/blog/ann-carey/coalition-of-american-nuns-supports-hhs-mandate?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+NCRegisterDailyBlog+National+Catholic+Register).

Yesterday, the Holy Father told this group (some of whom may identify themselves as "Catholic"): "Be converted, you still have time, so as not to end up in hell. That is what is waiting for you if you continue on this path" (http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/pope-francis-expresses-solidarity-with-victims-of-mafia-violence/ ).

"A founder of New Ways Ministry, she was prohibited by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in 1999 from continuing any ministry with people with same-sex attraction because she had misrepresented Church teaching” (http://www.ncregister.com/blog/ann-carey/coalition-of-american-nuns-supports-hhs-mandate?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+NCRegisterDailyBlog+National+Catholic+Register).


She was "among the 26 sisters who signed the 1984 New York Times ad that advanced the lie that there was more than one 'legitimate Catholic position on abortion'" (http://www.ncregister.com/blog/ann-carey/coalition-of-american-nuns-supports-hhs-mandate?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+NCRegisterDailyBlog+National+Catholic+Register).
