October Pope Video – Women in leadership roles in the Church

Oct 8, 2020 | Pope Video

By virtue of Baptism, we are all called to be missionary disciples of the Lord. Many women, answering this call, keep the Church on its feet throughout the world with their admirable self-giving and ardent faith. The Holy Father recognizes this fact when he proposes that women should have “a real and effective impact on the organization, the most important decisions and the direction of communities, while continuing to do so in a way that reflects their womanhood.” It’s not the first time he insists that women should hold positions of responsibility in the Church and participate in its decision-making bodies.

We pray that religious women and men, and seminarians grow in their own vocations through their human, pastoral, spiritual and community formation, leading them to be credible witnesses to the Gospel.
