    I know Theresa! (Hi Theresa). We were both students of our beloved Rosemary Radford Ruether at CGU. Very cool that you got the chance to interview her.

    We need to promote Vatican II (1962-65) to those who know very little about how the church changed to reach back to its original roots pre-Vatican I (1869-1870) when women were leaders in the church without the title!! And when the church was closer to the teachings of Jesus, which seems so important to the Millennials and younger generation. We must be careful not to fall into fundamentalism because it tries to move women back into gendered roles, such as complementarity. Go Theresa!! Leader, guide and mentor and fellow feminist!!
