On FB, Cardinal Dolan asks:: What would you ask Pope Francis to pray for? My Response: Dr, Alexandra Dyer's healing,

I just visited Cardinal Dolan's facebook page. He asks what would you ask Pope Francis to pray for?
I asked that he visit Dr. Alexandra Dyer and anoint her for healing. I would also ask Pope Francis to affirm women priests as beloved sisters and lift the excommunication against women priests and our supporters. The prohibition against women ordination is one such rule that is causing major damage to the church as well as to women who are called to serve as priests, Sadly, it appears that it may now be putting women priests in danger of physical attacks.
The recent violent attack that seriously burned the face of Dr. Alexandra Dyer, a Roman Catholic Woman Priest is a horrific example. . It is imperative that Pope Francis condemn sexism and violence against women, specifically this attack on a woman priest. He needs to name this violent act as evil and an attack on a sister in the Body of Christ, the church. http://nypost.com/2015/08/20/woman-priest-burned-in-liquid-attack-was-ambushed/
