The discussion revolved around the topic of souls. I link to the Huffington Post piece on the interview for that has a video of the actual interview, with all the gobblygoop pouring out of Chittister's mouth for all to hear. I also link to NewAdvent's discussion of the soul, and the Catholic theological and philosophical treatment of the same.
Now how does "light of consciousness of the beauty of life" conform to the definition of "soul" as set forth by the Magisterium? It doesn't - but that's Chttister's definition of "soul", as set forth in the beginning of the video. I will not go into a "blow-by-blow" expose of the myriad of errors tumbling out of Chittister's mouth - except to say that her babblings about "layers of consciousness" can and will facilitate justification for abortion and euthanasia. She says her soul now is different than her soul as a child; it is "thicker, deeper. warmer, brighter, wiser". Thankfully she didn't add "more humble" as a characteristic of her, uh, "modern soul".

*Update - Pewsitter added the word "recusant" to my "LCWR" interpretation. I like it! I'll keep it!
