Women in Christianity
We draw our life-sap through the roots of our faith in Jesus Christ. Will the church realize its beginnings with greater understanding and become a protagonist and witness of women's liberation?
Just Catholic: There was lots of talking together and walking together at the recent Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon region. Some 230 men and 35 women met, but on the interrelated questions of married priests and women deacons, the talking and the walking fell short.
Simply Spirit: Vatican statements on women priests are invariably ahistorical and biblically naive. It is embarrassing. Worse, they bear false witness to the Jesus of history.
Simply Spirit: Four years on, what can be said of Francis' papacy as it relates to women in the church? If you explore more deeply, there is much to praise.
