The (ever-increasingly important) PrayTellBlog.com has an update on the letter from German theologians. (See our story: 144 theologians confront hierarchy: Blunt letter says reforms necessary in light of scandals, priest shortage).
PrayTell says: More theologians have signed on, it is now 227 from the three German speaking countries, and 249 including theologians from other countries. This link also has an English translation of the letter.
Our colleague Lisa Fullam over on the Commonweal blog, has a great commentary on what this letter means and could do for the church.
Lisa didn't like the headline on our story and she has a good reason for saying so. Check it out.
