Day 58: No, he didn’t listen

Dear Pope Francis,

So, Archbishop Sartain spoke to the LCWR today. After meeting with representatives yesterday. Did he listen?

Well, if his sermon today at a Mass for the LCWR delegates was any indication, I’d say no.

It’s long past when male leaders in the Church should invoke Mary as a symbol for women and point out her submissiveness. It’s wrong. And I’m tired of it. It does a disservice to women, and Mary.

It’s time for new language and new images for women in the Church.

Your friend,
