"Catholic Women Must Be Valued, Not Clericalized": I participate in NYTimes debate

Today in the New York Times website's Room for Debate, I write opposite Christopher Jolly Hale on the issue of whether women should be ordained deacons. I am grateful to the Times' editors for giving me the opportunity to share Pope Francis's concerns about clericalism, as well as his comments on the dignity of women and the value of the lay vocation, in the public square.

If you are visiting from the Times website, I invite you to read my interview for the National Catholic Register and listen to my interview on "Catholic Answers Live" to learn about my work as an author and speaker on healing of memories.
