NCR Vatican correspondent Christopher White hosted a discussion about the 10th anniversary of Pope Francis' pontificate with Kate McElwee, executive director of the Women's Ordination Conference and Bishop John Stowe of Lexington, Kentucky, focusing on the role of women in the Catholic Church, the upcoming synod on synodality, the clergy sexual abuse scandal and more.
- Pope Francis' 10-year record on women may not be the fireworks of change many pray for, but there has been movement, says McElwee.
- According to Stowe, Pope Francis is teaching us that the peace which the world cannot give will be produced by recognizing the dignity of the human person and the global fraternity that we are called to live.
