Women in the Church
“The new instruction issued on 20 July 2020 by the Congregation of the Clergy confirms the Vatican is living in a patriarchal bubble.” So says We are Church, an organisation who have long fought for ordination rights for women and for married men. They also added that, “It is an attempt to reassert clerical male authority and lay (especially female) subordination.”
Miriam Gormally met with Soline Humbert from We are Church to find out more about this declaration and whether change can ever really happen within the Vatican. Soline pointed out that change is happening all around the world, where lay people and especially women are leading their communities, calling them the evangelisers who are keeping Christ’s message of love alive in today’s divided world. She explains more in this interview.
