“I believe”… These are the initial two words of the Apostles’ Creed, which originated around the third century. I would like to begin with these two forceful words. I believe that change can be effected without armed force and without hate speech, but solely through a revolution of the heart.

But most of all I believe in God and in the Roman Catholic Church. Faith in God is not something spectacular, but neither something ordinary in our pluralistic Western world…

WOW Prayer

O Holy One, You who are Creator of all,
who made humanity in Your image

Saviour of all, who called women and men
to witness Your ministry, death and resurrection,

Inspirer of all who seek and serve,

We thank You for the women You have blessed with Your call
to celebrate the Eucharist,
to minister alongside their brothers in a renewed Roman Catholic Church.

We pray that the Church will soon welcome and nourish to the full
the gifts of women as priests, prophets and leaders,
knowing, as Mary of Nazareth knew,
that with You all things are possible.
