The Catholic Herald is a Catholic magazine based in London. It was founded in 1888.
Pope Francis, Resurrection, women, youth
At The Catholic Herald we want our articles to provoke spirited and lively debate. We also want to ensure the discussions hosted on our website are carried out in civil terms.
All commenters are therefore politely asked to ensure that their posts respond directly to points raised in the particular article or by fellow contributors, and that all responses are respectful.
If Pope Francis has called for women to be messengers of faith and hope (and let’s face it, this also refers to men and young Catholics) then there must first be a correct understanding of Vatican II (in terms of the ‘Call to Holiness’ and the ‘role of laity’) in the churches in England and Wales, as well as renewed solid catechesis.
Unless these problems are rectified then there will continue to be few messengers of faith and hope.
