Daughters presents an intimate portrait of two ordained
Roman Catholic women priests. They are part of an
international movement of validly ordained women who seek to serve all
people, but especially those who feel marginalized by the insitution.

How Does the Holy
Spirit Assist the Church in Its Teaching?
Gaillardetz | January 31, 2014
to St. Irenaeus of Lyons, the bishops are given at their ordination a
charisma veritatis certum, “a sure charism of truth.” At Vatican II
this was affirmed in the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation,
Dei Verbum 8. In the council’s Dogmatic Constitution on the Church,
Lumen gentium 25 the council taught that the bishops teach “in the
light of the Holy Spirit.” Yet this teaching raises a number of

Kane - Nun Who Confronted the Pope
1979, Sister Theresa Kane was serving as President of the US Leadership
of the Women Religious when she was invited to publicly address Pope
John Paul II during his visit to the National Shrine in Washington DC.
She came before the Pope and the packed pews and said quietly: “We have
heard the powerful message of our church addressing the dignity and
reverence of all persons. As women, we have pondered these words." The
Church, "must respond by providing the possibility of women as persons
being included in all ministries.” While the Pontiff himself did not
immediately respond, Sister Theresa’s words were broadcast and
televised around the world. They continue to reverberate today. She
says her plea was “a surprise” to the public, “but not to professional
theologians or those in the sisterhood…we were looking at the role of
women in the church and society and I was quite imbued in that culture.”
