Sr. Joan Chittister's letter to Pope Francis

Joan Chittister published a personal letter to Pope Francis on the Benetvision Web site.

In it she writes, in part, "I implore you to do for the women of the world and the church what Jesus did for Mary who bore him, for the women of Jerusalem who made his ministry possible, for Mary of Bethany and Martha to whom he taught theology, for the Samaritan Woman who was the first to recognize Jesus as the Messiah, for Mary of Magdala who is called the Apostle to the Apostles, and for the deaconesses and leaders of the house churches of the early church."
