"A heartfelt, personal story of the gradual awakening of a woman who comes to see that preferring the 'human to the perfect' does not alienate her from authentic spirituality but allows her to live more fully."

We could have a campaign to make sure that women are first at the altar for communion..If the hierarchy are informed through advertising that the women going first is a criticism of their rejection of the minds and hearts of Catholic women and that the men are going to support their fellow Christian women, it could eventually be dramatic.


Support the Nuns lapel pins


Other PRAYERS TO THE LORD:
Please support the Leadership Conference of Women Religious nuns in America.
Please support our many silenced European theologians.
Please support the popular or local priest selection of Bishops.
Please pray for a more humble and Christ centered papacy.
Please pray for renewal of the original spirit of the bishops of Vatican II.
Please pray for ecumenical respect for Christians in non-Catholic churches.
Please pray for freedom of religion WITHIN the Roman Catholic Church.
Please pray for the Peace of the world.
Please pray for the poor, lonely, dispossessed.
Please pray that the lust for power and infallibility be stilled by a zeal for love and inclusion.

Each time a Catholic group has lay prayers, Pray to the Lord in group prayers to include prayers for women in religious vocations...this is done only rarely now.
The aim is to get women into the eucharistic prayer every mass if possible in the future.

Knights of Columbus organizations could be solicited to be explicitly supportive of the Christian mission of
women... Womens groups could approach them.

An effort to get a minimal VIGIL FOR SUPPORT OF THE NUNS in EVERY DIOCESE in the United States.
