Honey, I Shrunk the Church

June 9, 2014

“Small can be beautiful, and less is usually more. But as the kind of shrinkage to which I’ve pointed continues, the robust, diverse, committed Catholic community that so many hoped would accompany Pope Francis’ papacy seems a distant dream. The  current reality more closely resembles a bad movie. With many others, I’m working on a different sequel, one that features expansion and inclusion, openness and a warm embrace for all. 

Read of Mary E. Hunt’s disappointment with Pope Francis in this essay from Religion Dispatches Magazine.  Mary will be a plenary presenter at the upcoming EEWC-Christian Feminism Today 2014 Gathering in St. Louis, Missouri.
