"The first pope of the Catholic Church to have had a woman as a boss is steadfast in his defense of the status quo when it comes to women and Church leadership."
Bridget Mary's Response: I appreciate the story of the wonderful relationship that Pope Francis had with a woman boss. But, I do not understand his defense of the status quo when it comes to women and Church leadership. May I suggest that when he comes to the U.S. that he schedules a lunch with a group of women including women priests and our supporters. It could be an eye-opener and lots of fun too!
One of the gifts that women priests bring to the table is that in a church where half of the members are women, the church needs the Gospel preached from women's experiences and women's lives in order to grow in holiness and to minister to half of the world's population.
