“The time has come to embrace and empower the gifts of women in the leadership, governance and sacramental ministry of the Church. Women as deacons would be role models for other women and would attract men and women to walk with us. We would be especially enriched with the wisdom and insights women could bring to preaching during the Liturgy.”
Fr. James Casciotti, S.J., is the pastor of St. Ignatius Church in Baltimore, Maryland.
