During October we pray with Pope Francis that, by the virtue of Baptism, the laity, especially women, participate more in areas of responsibility in the Church.
I readily acknowledge that many women share pastoral responsibilities with Priests, helping to guide people, families and groups and offering new contributions to theological reflection.
