Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 29 settembre 2018

Rome Thursday, 4 October, 15:00 Casa Santa Maria alle Fornaci, Piazza Santa Maria alle Fornaci, 27 A panel discussion, “Discerning Women: Voices Outside the Synod,” will feature the voices, witness and testimony of women called to priesthood, international feminist theologians, and activists calling for a Church that works for justice and inclusion in the world.Women’s Ordination Conference resists the Vatican’s attempts to silence the voices of women in decision-making and sacramental roles by lifting up all women who are called to priesthood and all people who call for equality in Church structures. The pain of this closed door is felt deeply around the world and perpetuates discrimination and injustices against women and girls in society.”One of the things that the current crisis in the Church brings to light yet again is the reality that when you have men alone in positions of decision-making and authority, it creates a clerical culture where the reputation of priests gets prioritized over the needs of the people of God,” said Kate McElwee, Executive Director of Women’s Ordination Conference. “It is more urgent than ever to create a new way of being church that includes people of all genders together in transparent, accountable sacramental leadership.”
