An Open Letter to Pope Francis | Gina Messina-Dysert

Dear Pope Francis,As a Cradle Catholic and feminist theologian, the most impactful moment in my faith was the day you were elected pope. I was touched by your humility and commitment to social justice. And although I have struggled with my feminist Catholic identity over the years, your leadership has drawn me back in. For the first time in my life, I saw in you a leader who truly represents the mission of Jesus, a leader who validates my belief in Catholic social teaching and the full humanity of every person.Nonetheless, throughout your papacy I have waited patiently for your wisdom to impact my life as a Catholic woman. While you have acknowledged many issues that exist in our world leading to oppression, it seems that you do not recognize their interconnection with gender-based violence.
