My main objective in writing to you is to let you know that the reform I feel is needed in the Catholic Church is for women to be admitted to the decision making processes in the Church and also to have their vocations recognised. Women are called by God in various ways to follow Christ in the Church and the world. Women are being called to the priesthood but this is not recognised by the male dominated hierarchy of the Church.
God is saying to the Hierarchy and to Pope Francis, “Why have these women not been allowed to enter the vineyard?”
We women with vocations from God will in the end be allowed to enter the vineyard – we are so sorely needed now more than at any time in history. There are so many attacks on Christianity. It is severely under threat from the uninterested West to the destructive East.
The message is – God is calling us to serve as priests in the Catholic Church. How much longer will the Pope and the decision making Hierarchy be deaf to God’s call to women?
