Amen to Pope Francis' call for acceptance of LGBT. I look forward to the day that the pope will praise women priests as " beloved sisters and partners" living Jesus' vision of Gospel equality! Now that would bring a seismic shift in the Catholic Church!

"When Pope Francis recognized the gifts of LGBT Catholics and the positive nature of their unions he turned the conservative RC world upside down. This, one priest reflected, is the same as Jesus did with those on the margins in his time. He included all. We shall have to see if baby steps, or giant steps or even “Umbrella steps” (another step involving turning around, to cross the line in the old game of Red Light Green Light, will come out of this Synod. In this street game the players ask the leader: May I take a baby, giant or umbrella step and the leader would say what kind of step could be taken..." Judy Lee, RCWP
