Sign of Hope for Today: This Young Priest

This young priest is giving me hope. She sits there in the middle of a sea of men, unable to vote, but speaking up anyway. I was incredibly frustrated not only with the lack of voting rights for women present (male non-priests were able to vote, but not female), but also with the general lack of interest in or knowledge of the synod in general among my Catholic peers–particularly those who actively urge others to “stay and fight” but then proceed with business as usual. I realize this woman is not a Roman Catholic priest, but her presence, voice, and persistence give me hope.
