Apostolic Visitation of Women Religious

I am writing an article for my diocesan paper about the "Sacrifice of Enduring Love" Eucharistic Conference at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception last September 11. There were hundreds of young nuns in beautiful habits, full of love for the Eucharist and dedication to their vocation, part of the CMSWR (Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious).

This is just the kind of religious sisters the Holy Father was hoping to find when he ordered the Apostolic Visitation of Institutes of Women Religious, yet US Catholic magazine is framing it as an attack on US sisters. They have a poll here about Americans' opinion on the visitation.
So far it looks like Americans think the visitation is necessary.
What do you think?
