|Mary, Mother of Jesus, in Bishop's vestments|
"God raises up the lowly and overthrows the powerful from thrones. "
Mary's vision of justice proclaims God's victory over all oppression including sexism in our church. Therefore, we join Mary in her prayer that injustice will be overcome in our church and world. The Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests is working for justice and equality for women in the church by ordaining priests in apostolic succession. ARCWP is renewing the church now, one inclusive community at a time. wwww.arcwp.org
Just as the church is for everybody, so Pope Francis must be the pope of everyone including women in the church, which means not only equal pay for equal work, but equal opportunity for all the baptized to live their God-given vocations, including women in a renewed priestly ministry.
