A Giant Step, Part 2

If you are at all interested in the Tridentine mass proclamation from Pope Benedict, check out Sister Joan Chittister’s remarks on it, and more importantly, the dozens of comments in response to her remarks.

Sr. Joan is an inclusionist.  She wants the world to understand that God did not impose a different set of rules on women as God did on men; so why should a particular religion (Catholicism, in this case) attempt to distinguish?  Her remarks are very thoughtful.

I think that the comments are even more interesting.  There is room for agreement, difference of opinion, debate, arrogance, selfishness and selflessness and the various opinions reflect just how broad-reaching the Catholic church is.

A worthwhile read.
