In observance of International Women's Day on March 8, Matt Malone, S.J., and Kerry Weber chat with Nicole Perone from Rome, who spoke at an annual event held at the Vatican, Voices of Faith.  There Nicole spoke on a multigenerational panel, discussing how the church has succeeded in lifting up the voices of women in leadership and where growth could occur.

If the current trend continues, all this talk will amount to the equivalent of re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.
Seriously folks, we have major Catechetical issues. Even at our Catholic Colleges projections are that even in the Theology Faculties, Catholics are projected to minorities in the not too distant future.

Please note an important correction. It was John Cardinal Dearden who first shared the reflection, "Prophets of a Future not our Own," and not Archbishop Romero. Fr. Ken Untener wrote this for the cardinal's homily on the occasion of the mass for deceased priests in the Archdiocese of Detroit. Ms. Perone and Fr. Malone, I urge you to correct the mistake of attributing this to Archbishop Romero. Bishop Thomas Gumbleton told me that Romero's own biographer confirms that he never spoke these words. I am currently editing a book on the legacy of Cardinal Dearden and have the full documentation of Untener's homily. The text of the reflection may be found at: www.johncardinaldearden.com
