The Murphy Initiative for Justice and Peace

(Click on the images to see a larger version.)

I acquired this program and am simply reporting some of its content. Take it as it is.

Page 4 ad from Baltimore Catholic Worker, "The sin of sexism in the Church:/ordain the women./Plain and simple truth./No hedging./Frank Murphy, bishop./Our bishop./One of those shepherds who didn't run,/who spoke the truth/and lived it./Deo Gratias!"

Page 13 quote from Bishop Frank Murphy, "I do not believe, however, that we will be credible as a church in our call for justice ... until we find a way to integrate the full humanity and dignity of women within our ecclesial community."
[I don't know what this means exactly.]

Page 6 ad, "New Ways/Ministry/A gay-positive ministry of/advocacy and justice/for lesbian and gay Catholics/and reconciliation within the/larger Christian and civil/communities."

  1. Wow, that's very painful to read! Perhaps the bishop has never read Mulieris Dignitatem, "On the Dignity and Vocation of Women."


Please comment in a civil manner, i.e., no foul language, name calling, threats, etc.
