Network, a social justice organization representing Catholic Nuns in the United States issues open letter to the US Senate opposed to currently proposed heath-care legislation:
No matter what your political leanings, if you have concerns about how the vulnerable are being treated in the current political climate (especially regarding health care), you may want to reach out to your Senators:
Rob Portman, 216.522.7095 or 202.224.3353
Sherrod Brown, 216.522.7272 or 202.224.2315
If you want a little pastoral support, you may want to check out a recent (12th Sunday in Ordinary Time) homily on the topic. You have an opportunity to speak for the voiceless.
Q: For sixteen years, since first grade through college, I received a Catholic education. I probably have a minor in theology. During that time, I never heard of women priests. Never. Always men. What proof do you have that there were women who served as priests? Are there any books I can read? Primary sources? Did women priests really exist? Kathleen A. Brown
(Question and answer from the Newsletter: LEADING, published by the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests (ARCWP)
Kathleen A. Brown, a cradle Catholic,is constantly searching for the truth in her religion and the joy of Jesus.
A: If your mind and heart are open to different truths and ideas, congratulations. The Church has a way of considering itself the final word, while discreetly passing over and neglecting sections of history.
