Pope Benedict XVI delivers his blessing during the opening day of Rome's dioceses ecclesiastic meeting at St. John at the Lateran Basilica in Rome, Monday, June 11, 2012. Benedict has been trying to restore Catholic traditions he believes were lost 50 years ago in the modernizing reforms of the Second Vatican Council. As he presses for a more conservative Catholicism, the pope has been vigilant about ensuring that groups and individuals that operate in the name of the church are adhering to core Catholic teaching. The Vatican orthodoxy watchdog, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, concluded in April that the Leadership Conference of Women Religious had strayed far from authentic doctrine and gave three American bishops the authority to overhaul the organization. The board for the nuns’ group responded by calling the Vatican’s investigation flawed and its conclusions unsubstantiated. Top executives of the sisters’ organization are bringing their concerns to a meeting Tuesday, June 12, in Rome with Vatican officials. (AP Photo/Riccardo De Luca)
