The international Roman Catholic Women Priests Movement - in solidarity with our courageous sister Ludmilla Javorova- are making the road to full equality in the Church by walking it now. Bridget Meehan ARCWP
WOC conversation with Sr. Miriam Therese Winter discussing the life and legacy of ordained Catholic priest Ludmila Javorova. Hearing Miriam Therese recount the story of meeting Ludmila and getting her story, along with recounting the dangers Ludmila, Bishop Felix Davidek and the 500+ underground priests faced was both gripping and inspiring.
Ludmila faced multiple dangers and betrayals throughout her life -- from the repressive communist regime to the Vatican who suppressed her ordination after her decades of courageous pastoral leadership. Betrayed by officials in the Church, we want to ensure that her legacy and her selfless dedication is not forgotten. She is a priest forever, and the kind of priest that serves as a model for the church today! Please spread the Good News about Ludmila Javorova, ordained priest, woman, and courageous minister in our church!
