Pope Francis greets a woman in 2017 at the blessing of the cornerstone of Talitha Qum homeless shelter in Cartagena, Colombia. At the end of their plenary meeting March 6-9 at the Vatican, members of the Pontifical Commission for Latin America proposed that the Church hold a Synod of Bishops “on the theme of the woman in the life and mission of the Church.” (Credit: Paul Haring/CNS.)

My Response:Women are not the issue, patriarchy is. Any Synod on women must be led by women and women need to be voting members, otherwise, it will be another going down the rabbit hole! When will the Vatican ever learn? Bridget Mary Meehan ARCWP, www.arcwp.org
