"Whose Gospel is it Anyway?" by Phyllis Zagano, "From Patriarchy to Partnership" by Bridget Mary Meehan ARCWP

Bridget Mary's Response:  I agree with Zagano that this does not reflect the "incisive" presence of women in leadership roles in the Vatican. My advice to Pope Francis, is that actions speak louder than words.

Zagano: "Who knows where the list came from, but the pope approved 12 men and one woman as consulters to the 2-year-old Vatican Secretariat for Communication.
This does not send a good message...You think maybe everybody needs to remember who announced the Resurrection?"

Bridget Mary's Response: I agree. It is time for the Vatican to follow the example of the Risen Christ, who according to all four gospels, chose women to be the chief messengers of the Good News. When will Pope Francis and the Vatican realize that in the 21st century we are moving from patriarchy to partnership! Oh my and I thought this appointment of an equal number of women to  the Vatican Secretariat  for Communications would be a no-brainer!
