Watching: “Radical Grace” on Independent Lens

Earlier this month, PBS showed “Radical Grace,” a documentary about Catholic nuns, as part of the American Reframed series. The film follows the Network Lobby and the Nuns on the Bus, who made headlines in recent years for the stand against orthodox Church teaching, and it explores the Vatican’s subsequent censure of American women religious. The steady strength of the nuns, who function through love and patience rather than power and consequences, is remarkable as they share their own brand of pro-life values in the face of an abortion-centered Church view of what pro-life means.
