Editor’s note: This blog mentions a religious group with Sedevacantism beliefs, meaning the group does not recognize any of the popes [2] inaugurated after Pope Pius II died in 1958.

Amtrak’s newest ad [3] features four nuns as they begin their journey out West.

However, the Rorate Caeli blog raises questions [4] about whether Amtrak knows that these religious women – Sister Mary Xavier Selway, Sister Mary Raphael, Sister Mary Jognes and Sister Antoinette Marie – are members of The Daughters of Mary Mother of Our Savior, which hold Sedevacantism [5] beliefs.

I agree with the Rorate Caeli blog that the nuns in the ads are much more exciting that a boring, average person posing with luggage. (Plus, seeing a photo of nuns in full habits and dresses brings back memories of my 12 years of Catholic school).

However, I hope Amtrak is aware that the specific religious background of these sisters might be unintentionally making a statement in support of a Sedevacantism belief.
