READER'S DIGEST Sister Predicts Greater Role for Catholic Women By MARIE H. WALLING Republic Religion Editor With a confident smile, Sister Laurenlia Digges predicted last week that in the future, women will have a much greater role in the Roman Catholic church than they have had. The tiny five-foot nun, author of several books, was in Phoenix to visit her mother, Mrs. Mary Digges. "In some ways, I think we have tended to emphasize women too much in our society," declared Sister Laurenlia, S h c admitted having a "thing" about women in the role of priest and would prefer not to sec them laking holy orders. "Women and men should be complementary." She added, "I'm very big on rights for women, though." The nun said she believes women will "definitely have more influence in determining canon law that affects women. "Women in the church have been ruled by men for centuries!" However, the canon law which demands celibacy of nuns should not be changed to a voluntary law, she believes. Recently, the laws of celibacy governing priests have been challenged by men both inside and outside the clergy. No such challenge has been made in behalf of nuns. "What's the point of it?" asked Sisler Laurentia. She noted that there are ample opportunities for women who wish to marry to undertake the same kinds of commitment to service that nuns do. "The basic thing about the sisterhood is the community life, which is impossible without celibacy."

"We have made several changes in my community," she noted. "For example, we pray where and when we wish, except for Holy Office. We can travel alone instead of with another sister.''

"Obviously they spied on me at a distance and mistook me for a girl," he- said. might be wise, she is not in favor of radical change. "We never worry about being molested, even when we're doing service work in the toughest slums. The habit seems to call for reverence automatically. "Besides," noted the vivacious nun, "people always come up to us to talk about their problems. They recognize that I am a nun and believe f am a person they can , trust, who's not out for myself." The dropout rate among nuns has increased markedly in the past decade, and the number of women and girls entering the sisterhoods has decreased. Sister Laurentia bel i e v e s this is because "everything is in a state of transition. Today there are so many possibilities for what a woman can do with her life. "The unrest is reflected, also, in the climbing divorce rate," she noted. "In both marriage and the religious vocation, it is always hard to commit ourselves permanently, to toss our life lightheartedly into a commitment — and leave it there." Nevertheless, the general unrest is healthy, she believes. DRY CLEANING SPECIAL: fret Pickup & Dalivary .

Her latest book, Adam's Haunted Sons (Macrnillan), is a dramatic retelling in human terms, of the stories of several Old Testament figures.
