The Holy Father will celebrate the Jubilee of Priests from the 1st
of the 3rd of June in Rome. After his recent announcement
about the creation of a commission to study female diaconate,
I thought was important to be present in Rome in the shape of lectures and a open-air exhibition in the streets of Rome.
1 JUNE 2016 5PM @ CASA INTERNAZIONALE DELLE DONNE
Within the event a Jubilee for Women Priests organized by the association Women Ordination Worldwide, Nausicaa Giulia Bianchi will present her project "You Gave The Virgin a New Heart".
The documentary project explores the life and faith of Roman Catholic Women Priests that are excommunicated by the Vatican because they disobey a canon law that says that only a male can be ordained priest. Since 2013 Bianchi has met more than 70 women in United States and Colombia.
“Inspired by prophets and mystics, against clericalism and power, women priests open their communities to divorced, gay, and all those whom the Church does not invite to their Eucharistic table. I was shown a model of world where if there is no justice for the smallest and the weakest, then there’s no justice at all. To me those women are a symbol. They are showing us the primacy of conscience and how to renew our own tradition.”— Giulia Bianchi
