My comment: Resistance and persistence are the story of my life, especially as a woman priest with the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests in the struggle for equality for women in our church. www.arcwp.org We are creating the church of the future now in grassroots, inclusive communities  where all are welcome and where women are equals as we celebrate liturgies and work to transform our beloved church into a more loving and just community.

"Catholicism has a feminist potential, and we need strong women to stay to make this possible for our daughters and future generations. Pope Francis has opened the door to discussions of women deacons, which may hopefully open the door further to women priests.
Let’s keep these possibilities alive and look beyond the Church’s patriarchal man-made teachings. It’s there we’ll find a tradition of love, inclusion, liberation and social justice. It’s one that welcomes everyone to the table. This is the tradition that Gina and so many others, including me, continue to practice. Feminist resistance and persistence are urgently needed to carry the Church into the future. "
