Women Priests Were Warned , Were Given an Explanation, Nevertheless, Persisted

 Mitch McConnell's explanation for silencing Elizabeth Warren from the Senate floor:

“She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

Like Elizabeth Warren, women priests were warned, given an explanation for our excommunication by the Vatican, and, nevertheless, we have persisted. Since 2002, we have lived Gospel equality in grassroots, inclusive Catholic communities where all are welcome to receive sacraments. Our call is to live this prophetic vision now as if it is a reality in our church.

We also make our voices heard for for human rights, non-violence, justice and equality for all people- especially for the poor and for those on the margins- including undocumented immigrants- in our country and in our world. Jesus calls us to love one another, to live compassion and to do justice. And, as Martin Luther King reminded us injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Therefore, we treat one another with mutual respect, as images of the Holy One, and do all we can to promote and live equality for all.
