Bridget Mary's Response: In the photos below, two women priests, Janice Sevre Duszynska ARCWP and Christine Moreira ARCWP with members of Women's Ordination Worldwide leadership attended the liturgy for the Jubilee for Priests in St. Peter's Square in Rome on June 3, 2016.
The Spirit is calling all to live the fullness of the outpouring of God's love: "The love of God is poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit given to us". (Romans 5:5) Our movement offers the gift of a renewed priestly ministry in a community of equals, a non-clerical model of ministry, in ecclesial communities that live Jesus' example of an open table where all are welcome to celebrate Eucharist and all the sacraments. Amen to Cardinal Muller's affirmation:"Bishops are not the commandants of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is." Let us remember when we come together in love, the Holy Spirit is present!
