6] – Consider getting HOSPITALITY, the newsletter of OPEN DOOR: A
prophetic discipleship community honoring the Black Jesus, Dorothy Day and
Martin Luther King, Jr. The September/October 2022 issue contains a wonderful
review by Claire Schaeffer-Duffy of Surely Goodness and Mercy by Murphy Davis,
reprinted from The Catholic Worker, March-April 2022. Davis, a co-founder
of the Open Door Community, died in 2020. You can subscribe to the
newsletter or buy a copy of the book by calling 404-290-2047 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
7] – Another book to consider purchasing is Male Supremacy in the
Catholic Church: An Insider’s View by Roy Bourgeois. His new book is both
memoir and position-paper, and it makes the case that the Roman Catholic Church
is a corrupt system that spits out truth-tellers. The crime he was
excommunicated for was attending the ordination ceremony of Janice
Sevre-Duszynska in Lexington, Kentucky, in August 2008. The ordination was
under the auspices of the Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests.
The Vatican’s response has been to excommunicate any woman who has the audacity
to see herself as a priest equal to a male priest. You can purchase a copy
from Amazon or by Kindle.
Here are two quotes to contemplate: “I permit no woman to teach or to have
authority over men. She is to keep silent.” – Timothy 1, 2:12-13. “If the
patriarchy that dominates the church is not dismantled and women are not
treated as equals, the church will continue to diminish and, eventually, die.” –

Aramin as they share their stories of loss and their unique choice of reconciliation

be a company that follows through on their promises to end this animal cruelty.
