Vatican assembly on women equality without priesthood talk 'a joke': Universal Society of Hinduism
Vatican assembly on women's equality in Rome from February 4-7 despite big fanfare seemed like a joke as there was no discussion proposed on women priesthood, distinguished religious statesman Rajan Zed stated in Nevada (USA) today.
Bishop Bridget Mary Meehan agrees...
Bridget Mary's Response: I agree with Hindu Leader Rajan Zed that it is time for the Vatican to affirm a renewed priestly ministry with women priests The good news is that the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests is serving inclusive communities where all are welcome to receive sacraments. The image illustrating Vatican equality is disturbing. The Vatican image reflects a patriarchal, dysfunctional church that holds women in spiritual bondage. This image denigrates women's bodies and souls and reflects a deep misogyny in need of healing and transformation. Bridget Mary Meehan, ARCWP
