Colombia, September 5, 2022Brother Francis:
Although I would not want to bother you with my letters, this is the 3rd one. May it reach your hands and may you read it.
There is not a day that goes by that I do not pray for you, for your health and for the great ministry whose weight you carry.
Today I want to celebrate with you and with the whole Church the 12th Anniversary of my Priestly Ordination as a woman presbyter in Latin America and 7 years as a bishop.
I am fully aware and conscious that the ecclesial norms do not conceive that women are worthy representatives of the Divinity as well as baptized men. We are also baptized and yet we are not recognized as such. For claiming our rights, we are condemned and marginalized.
My dignity as a daughter of the Divinity, raises my voice asking the ecclesiastical hierarchy, through you, to exercise its power of justice and equity with us women priests.
