Voices of Faith Zoom: Yes to women deacons and priests
Yes to women deacons and priests –
prominent churchmen show solidarity with women.
Sr Philippa Rath
Friday 18 February 5.00pm (CET) (That’s 4.00pm in Ireland!)
With her book “…because God wants it”, the Benedictine Philippa Rath has given the discussion about ordained ministries for women a powerful boost.
The new volume “Women in ministry!“ takes the next step: 100 men of the Church – priests, deacons and religious, lay people and also a number of bishops – show solidarity with the cause of women. In personal, also self-critical reports of their experiences, they describe where they miss the work of women in pastoral care and the joint commitment of the sexes in pastoral work.
The many-voiced testimonies from the midst of the Church are a passionate appeal to finally recognise the diverse charisms and talents of women in the Church. They give a powerful response to the testimonies of women and show: Women and men want change. Women and men want justice – because God wants it!
